The Graduate Musician in Residence will be an advanced performer with superb accompanying skills and a genuine enthusiasm for working with young musicians in their role of providing advice and coaching at a variety of levels. Our music department is a busy but friendly one, involving frequent rehearsals and concerts as well as a high number of girls taking exams and diplomas. To a certain degree, the role can be tailored to individual skills and future aspirations and the post holder will be encouraged to pursue and develop their strengths and interests. The ability to assist with other musical disciplines e.g. theory, aural, and choirs will also be a great asset; as will a willingness to work flexible hours during term time – including rehearsals for the Association Choir (parents and friends of the school) and assisting the Director of Music in preparation for the school Musical. Applicants should also expect to be involved for an additional five days during the Easter holidays as part of the prestigious Jennifer Bate Organ Academy that takes place at St Catherine’s School each year.
Strong sight-reading skills are essential, as is a sense of humour and willingness to be part of a very friendly and supportive team – whose work centres around the girls’ enjoyment and musical development.
Although much of the work will be based in the Senior School (ages 11-18), the person appointed should enjoy working with young people across the 4-18 age range and also possess solid ICT skills as well as a readiness to see what needs doing and to do it.
