We currently require upper strings specialists to run string ensembles on our Tuesday night music centre – Intermediate and Seniors – as well as teaching individual lessons with a growing waiting list. We have a dynamic team running a number of progressive ensembles and the successful candidates will need to be equally dynamic, energised, creative and keen to develop the current string environment. You will need vision, commitment, energy and want fun, high expectations and opportunities for your players. Opportunities within the school setting may well develop from this initial appointment.

We also seek an outstanding vocal specialist for both school based as well as evening ensembles. Our hugely successful vocal programme and singing strategy is ready to expand and we would like to hear from engaging vocal educators from a range of disciplines: classical, musical theatre, jazz, pop vocals….any area of vocal technique. Candidates with personality, skill and the ability to engage young performers with vocal progression quickly, will be successful. Keyboard skills would be advantageous.

In addition we have a waiting list for students seeking individual lessons in woodwind (flute and sax particularly), piano, electric guitar and bass guitar and there is also the possibility of some in-school, 1st Access/WCET brass teaching.

Successful candidates will find opportunities to grow with fully supported CPD throughout the year.

We are a small Music Hub and Service supporting 95 schools but with a growing team. Many of our schools and pupils come from disadvantaged backgrounds and we pride ourselves on the huge number of pupils we have engaged in musical activity in spite of the barriers they or their schools may face. We have a number of strong partnerships with other arts organisations and alongside our large programme of in-school and Music Centre engagement we have an exciting and challenging programme of large scale events.

The position(s) will be paid hourly.
