£40.61 - £47.66 per hour dependent on experience

We are looking to appoint an exceptional and versatile, popular music drum kit teacher to inspire, nurture and train undergraduate producers for the BA in Music Performance and Industry.

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
Contract Type
Hourly paid
Closing Date
12th July 2022

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is a forward-thinking world-class Higher Education Institution. At the leading edge of music and dance training, we provide the highest quality specialist education, reflecting the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice and supporting professional artists’ lifelong career development. The BA in Music Performance and Industry is a three-year undergraduate programme in popular music that complements a wide range of studies across the Faculty of Music. Our teaching staff are world-class creative musicians and teachers and, as such, are role models for our students.

The post holder will ideally be an outstanding performer and perceptive teacher with experience in both areas and able to communicate and share a love for drumming and instil a work ethic and healthy practice techniques.

As a Drum Kit teacher, your job will be to tutor students individually and occasionally in groups. You will carefully nurture their technique, group playing and performance as they develop into a professional artist. Your students will be learning skills across many popular music genres, so they need to achieve a high-level technique, great feel and time with the ability to improvise and be a crucial part of creative, collaborative processes. The teacher will be able to teach the students to be reflective and auto-didactic and inspire them to appreciate the balance between technical accomplishment and individual artistic voice. At Trinity Laban, we believe that students should always find ways to apply their advancing musical skills and technique to create a personal identity, informed by an open-minded and critical approach to all music.

In popular music study, we seek to address the inequality in society by positively encouraging a diverse student and staff membership. We aim to foster an inclusive community that reflects our society. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, pregnancy, and maternity.
