One vacancy is available from January 2024 (Hourly paid, Saturdays during term-time only)
The Royal College of Music Junior Department (RCMJD) is a specialist term-time only Saturday school offering advanced training to musicians between the ages of 6 and 18. Students combine studying at RCMJD with their general education at their chosen week-day school. Students come together at the RCM London each Saturday for a tailor-made programme of individual instrument/voice/composition lessons, chamber music, orchestral and choral training, and general musicianship. Our staff are professional performers/composers as well as teachers and offer the highest standards of tuition and coaching. Most RCMJD students continue their musical studies at the RCM or other major conservatoires/universities.
The RCMJD is seeking to engage a bassoon teacher to join our vibrant and expanding RCMJD woodwind faculty. The post holder will be responsible for teaching individual students and coaching chamber groups.
We are looking for candidates with the following attributes:
• You should be a highly respected practitioner, either as a performer or teacher.
• You will be teaching to an exceptionally high level of technical and musical proficiency, gifted and talented students aged between 8 and 18, so relevant teaching experience at this level is essential.
• You should understand the particular demands of the music profession whilst striving to help each student reach the fullness of their potential.
We expect to be able to offer a minimum of 4 hours teaching per week, for approximately 30 weeks per year. Up to 7 hours of teaching per week may be available, depending on scheduling and timetable considerations for next academic year.
