Hertfordshire Music Service is currently seeking guitar teachers to teach across Hertfordshire but especially in East Herts, Welwyn and Hatfield, Watford and Dacorum areas. This role will include individual and small group teaching as well as First Access.

Our vision is that all Hertfordshire’s children and young people, regardless of background or circumstances, have the opportunity, to discover or develop their unique musical voice and express themselves through the language of music.

What will be expected from me?

Your pay will be determined on the HMS pay scale (to be discussed on appointment). Teachers can progress up the pay scale through successful performance management.
