Visiting Music Teacher (Brass)

Person specification

We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and highly organised brass teacher to be part of our vibrant department and teach individual 30-minute lessons for children from Years 3 to 8.

The role requires the brass teacher to provide pupils with a rounded musical education and the successful applicant will be an experienced and talented teacher, who is able to inspire young singers. The teacher will be able to develop their pupils’ musicianship not only through solo playing, but through building a wide instrumental repertoire, practising sight reading, and helping their pupils take advantage of our ensemble and solo opportunities. The hours will depend on the number of pupils wishing to learn the instrument. Currently there are nine pupils learning brass instruments.

The teacher will be responsible for organising their own timetable, liaising with parents, preparing children for music exams and encouraging children to perform in concerts.

The brass teacher, as with all of our visiting music teachers, will be paid directly by parents at a rate set by the teacher, usually between £23 and £25 per 30-minute lesson. The brass teacher will be seen as self-employed, and they pay a fee of £1 per lesson to the school, to hire their teaching room.
