Visiting Music Teacher (Cello)

Closing date for application: 16/11/2020 12:00am

Interview date:

Vacancy Type: Part-Time


GES has a dynamic team of Visiting Music Teachers (VMTs) and the school has in recent years enjoyed a growing culture of learning a musical instrument as well as taking part in the School Ensemble.

We now have an opportunity for an inspiring and experienced cello teacher.

This would initially be for a small number of pupils, but we anticipate the role would grow as the school continues to expand. At GES, we use the Music Teachers Board exam system and our VMTs are all very skilled at guiding their pupils through these exams, should the pupil wish to follow an examination structure.
