Visiting Violin Teacher
Required: Immediately (October 2021/January 2022)
We are seeking a skilled violinist with first-rate teaching and communication skills to join our team of self-employed Visiting Music Teachers as soon as possible, and to play a key role in developing our pupils' musical talents and potential.
Experience of working with both Prep and Senior age groups, and success in preparing students for grade examinations, will be advantageous.
We envisage being able to offer 1 day's worth of work for the successful candidate in the first instance, depending on candidates' availability. Additional opportunities to be involved with accompanying and/or coaching some chamber music may be available for the right candidates and we do expect demand for violin tuition to increase again following this appointment so there will likely be additional hours available if desirable in the future.

We aim to provide a platform for all our musicians to perform, be that as a soloist or as a member of one of our many ensembles. As well as the dedicated Music School, Sydenham High School has its own purpose-built Recital Hall with access to professional sound recording equipment. An adventurous and forward-looking programme of concerts and events is in place for each term, with pupils engaging regularly with professional musicians, as well as performing in professional venues outside the School.
