The Latymer School is a selective, co-educational grammar school in North London with an outstanding musical tradition and excellent facilities. We are seeking an experienced and inspirational Flute Teacher to join our large team of visiting music teachers from September 2021.
The successful applicant will be an outstanding flautist and flute teacher who enjoys working with young people and who has considerable experience of working with teenage musicians, from beginner to advanced. The ability to work effectively as part of a team is vital and it is likely that the successful applicant will have prior experience of working in a secondary school environment. They will have experience of preparing students for ABRSM examinations and be able to work with students preparing for GCSE and A level performances. Their knowledge of repertoire will be extensive, and they will be able to advise on maintenance and purchase of instruments.
About 400 instrumental and singing lessons take place every week in school – including a total of three days of flute teaching. We expect there to be at least a whole day (or two half days) of flute teaching for the successful applicant, with the potential for some ensemble coaching in the future. The hourly rate for instrumental tuition from September 2021 will be £39.00.
ABRSM examination sessions in January, May and July take place in the Great Hall or in the Music Department, with well over 100 candidates per year. There is strong uptake of Music at GCSE and A level - typically at least 30 and 10 students per year respectively. Our extensive extra-curricular programme includes five orchestras, various choirs and bands. There is a wide range of concerts and other music events across the year, some involving as many as 400 performers. Our recent Instrumental and Vocal Performance Competition saw 200 entries across four levels of ability; the external adjudicator for the Open Category Finals commented, “I was overwhelmed by the standard of musicianship in every category [and] the lovely atmosphere of support.”
Further information about the school is available on the school's website.
To apply, please use The Latymer School Teaching Application Form provided, to arrive no later than Friday 4 June 2021.
A suitable candidate may be appointed before the closing date, so an early application is advised.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview; part of the process will include a short flute lesson with one of our students.
We expect interviews to take place on Friday 18 June.
