Visiting Music Teacher (VMT) - Cello

We are seeking to appoint an inspiring, committed and highly-skilled self-employed (Visiting Music Teacher VMT) to teach Cello in both the Junior and Senior schools.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher with a passion for inspiring our young musicians to perform to the highest possible standard as well as being an active performer in their own right.

Currently, only a small number of pupils play the Cello but it is hoped that the successful candidate will take a proactive role in growing pupil numbers, through regular workshops and ‘taster’ lessons.

Our team of Visiting Music Teachers are recruited by our Directors of Music from both the Junior School and Senior school. They are responsible to the JS Director of Music, in all matters relating to performance, ensembles, recruitment and pupil progress and the day-to-day management of their timetables.

Visiting Music Teachers are self-employed and invoice parents directly each term. The rate is currently set at £40 per hour.

Visiting Music Teachers are expected to communicate with parents to arrange lessons, organise payment and report on progress, avoiding core subjects where possible, when timetabling. They are also required to submit timetables in advance of teaching to the music administrator.

Application Forms and Job Description for this role are available on our website www.slcuk.com and should be sent via email to the HR Manager at hr@slcuk.com

Closing date: 17th February 2023
