King’s School Rochester seek an inspiring and enthusiastic Teacher of Music Theory to deliver theory lessons to Cathedral Choristers across the Prep and Senior Schools. The music department at King’s is a friendly, busy environment in which pupils thrive: Last year alone, alumni have won places to study music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (Violin) and Guildhall School of Music and Drama (violin); pupils in the Lower Sixth hold places in the National Youth Orchestra and the National Youth Training Choirs and a number of pupils are involved with Kent County Music ensembles. A King’s pupil also won the Woodard Schools’ Young Musician competition in May 2020.
Interviews will take place in the week commencing 26th April 2021
The choral tradition at King’s remains one of the pillars of the school: The Cathedral Choristers have been educated at King’s for centuries and the school has had a close association with the Cathedral since its founding in 604AD. Last year, the senior choir made a CD in the cathedral and joined pupils from other schools in the Woodard Schools’ Choral Festival. Since January 2019, theory lessons for Choristers have been taught at King’s school and this is an arrangement we seek to continue.
