Esther Redding has a few more ideas to tip the balance in your favor at that all-important job interview.

11. Be prepared to discuss a "worst-case scenario. Many administrators will set up fictitious situations to see how you'll react. "Since you can't be aware of the discipline policy in each individual school, you can cover this by saying that you'll naturally follow the school's policy ... and you'll contact the parents," says Redding. Communicating with all parties is critical.
12. Ask how you can get your music program out into the public. "If you have performing groups, you will probably be presenting a winter and spring concert," says Redding, "but inquire about opportunities to have your students play at nursing homes, the mall, etc." Good PR and effective advocacy are vital to your job and your program's success.

Esther Redding suggests that a professional, thorough resume and portfolio, professional attire, a firm handshake, and "under control" technology can help give you an edge in an interview.

A few more of Redding's tips to up your game:
7. Bring your instrument along on the interview. "Many administrators don't care how well you play," says Redding, "but it doesn't hurt to show that you're willing to perform if they so desire.
...
"Sometimes candidates can talk a long time without answering the question," Redding says. "Even though you might be nervous, take your time."
10. Be ready to describe your ideal classroom. When you do a "virtual tour" of a classroom where you'd love to teach, make sure you mention that you'll have classroom rules posted, both the school's and some of your own. According to Redding, "This shows that you have set clear boundaries and consequences"-critical tools for operating a successful classroom.

Before you interview, music educator Esther Redding suggest that you

Make sure your resume is professional in appearance [have a friend or colleague read it!]. Online programs offer suggestions as to format and content. Redding adds: "This piece of paper is your first contact with the school district.
...
Although what you say is most important, as Redding says, "If the position is a close call between two candidates, your clothing is noticed."
...
Redding suggests including "information about your educational philosophy, sample lesson plans, your cooperating teacher's observations of your student teaching experiences, college transcript, music you arranged, programs of your performances, state police background check, etc. One candidate even included his TB results."
Redding also advises, "Check the school district's website to see their current philosophy and teaching practices. We are currently focusing on LFS (Learning Focus Schools), and it helps if candidates have a knowledge of what that is and how to implement it in their lessons."
