The Post

Brent Music Service (BMS) is looking for an enthusiastic and committed teacher to deliver our whole-class primary music programme; “Music’sCool”. In the last year, our “Music’sCool” programme has grown in popularity resulting in increased demand as schools recognise the vital role music plays in delivering a broad and balance curriculum.

“Music’sCool” is a progressive programme which places singing at its heart and provides every child the opportunity to learn several instruments including the recorder, ukulele, tamboo bamboo, Djembe drums and samba. Musical skills and knowledge are developed from EYFS through to Year 6 pupils with children maturing into competent well-rounded musicians. We use aspects of the Kodaly method in order to facilitate this progression and consistency. It is desirable but not essential for applicants to have knowledge of the Kodaly approach.

The Person

All levels of experience are considered. It is not necessary to have QTS as all “Music’sCool” teachers receive comprehensive training and support.

This position would be ideal for:

  • primary music teachers or classroom teachers with musical expertise
  • secondary trained music teachers looking to transition to the primary phase
  • instrumental tutors looking to widen their skills and work with whole classes
  • recent graduates

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed teachers to become part of our core team who can contribute to the wider life of BMS in addition to whole class teaching. This may be instrumental teaching, school ensembles or choirs or teaching in our Evening Centres one evening per week.

Brent Music Service is committed to recruiting, retaining and developing a workforce that reflects the diverse community that we serve. We particularly welcome applications from people from underrepresented groups including people Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and from all qualified candidates regardless of gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.

Please apply promptly. Suitable candidates may be shortlisted for interview before the application deadline as there may be multiple positions available.
