Opera North is England’s national opera company in the North and one of Europe’s leading arts organisations. In Harmony is a national initiative that aims to inspire and transform the lives of children, their families and wider communities through school and community-based orchestral music-making. In Harmony Opera North has been running since 2013 in south Leeds and currently works in 6 primary schools and 1 secondary school with over 2,000 children and young people each week.
Several opportunities have arisen for experienced, well-motivated Instrumental Tutors (Violin, Viola and Trombone) to join our ambitious and creative team delivering a year-round programme of high quality and engaging instrumental and ensemble tuition within Opera North’s celebrated In Harmony programme. Working with pupils from KS1 – KS4, the appointed instrumental tutors will lead small group instrumental lessons, co-lead ensembles and have the opportunity to develop their skills by leading more specialist areas, such as SEND and Early Years provision. The successful trombone tutor will have the opportunity to apply for a promoted ‘Phase Lead’ post.
The successful candidate will have a solid classical music training and be able to demonstrate experience of working professionally delivering engaging and high-quality instrumental and ensemble tuition with children and young people. This post is subject to satisfactory DBS clearance and the ability to work across locations.
