The Royal College of Music Junior Department (RCMJD) is a specialist term-time only Saturday school offering advanced training to musicians between the ages of 6 and 18. Students combine studying at RCMJD with their general education at their chosen week-day school. Students come together at the RCM London each Saturday for a tailor-made programme of individual  instrument/voice/composition lessons, chamber music, orchestral and choral training, and general musicianship. Our staff are professional performers/composers as well as teachers and offer the highest standards of tuition and coaching. Most RCMJD students continue their musical studies at the RCM or other major conservatoires/universities.

We are looking for candidates with the following attributes:

  • You should be an experienced and respected choral conductor
  • You will be conducting gifted and talented students aged between 11 and 16, so relevant teaching and/or conducting experience at this level is essential

We expect to be able to offer a minimum of one hour of conducting per week, with an additional paid hour for preparation, for approximately 30 weeks per year. Additional payment will be provided for involvement in concerts.
