We currently have one vacancy at the Thornbury Area Youth Music Trust:
To provide cello tuition for small group lessons, and the potential to lead our Senior string group and co-lead the Senior Orchestra.
Start date: From 9th January 2021
Salary: £28 per hour
Job Role and Description: The Thornbury Area Youth Music Centre (TAYM) is based at Manorbrook Primary School, Thornbury Bristol, and provides a variety of musical activities for children aged 4 to 18 on Saturday mornings in term time. In the current climate, TAYM are offering online tuition using Zoom to deliver a reduced timetable. It is envisaged that when we can revert to a new ‘normal’ delivering face to face sessions, the timetable will revert to a full morning of activities.
We are currently looking to recruit an enthusiastic and talented Cello Tutor to teach on the Let’s Play (LP) Scheme from 9th January 2021, with the potential to direct the Senior Strings and co-direct the Senior Orchestra.
The aim is that after participating in the LP scheme, children will progress into Training ensembles; sometimes there is the opportunity to continue to receive tuition on their instrument at the music centre from their LP Tutor (usually 20 minute paired lessons).
All music centre children have previously been encouraged to perform to their parents, family and friends, in a celebratory ‘showcase’ concert at the end of each term, which we will revert to when the situation allows! In the meantime, we are exploring video ensemble recordings as a celebration of the term’s achievement.
For this role: there are currently 2 sessions of LP cello teaching: 1 x 20 minute individual lesson, and 1 x 30 minute small group lesson. Teaching takes place on Saturday mornings during term time (average 10 weeks per term).
All music tutors / coaches have to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check undertaken (previously CRB check).
