Relocation assistance available as appropriate
A well-qualified, inspiring and experienced musician is required to join our large and vibrant Music department as a full-time Head of Woodwind, Brass and Percussion. It is likely that the successful candidate will be a first study flautist.
The Music department has 8 full-time and 35 visiting staff. Within the Woodwind, Brass and Percussion Faculty there are 10 teachers who currently deliver over 120 individual lessons each week. Currently we have a Symphonic Windband, Brass Ensemble, Saxophone Ensemble, Two Flute Ensembles, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Band and in addition two Symphony Orchestras, three String Ensembles, College Choir, Lower College Choir, Gospel Choir, Chamber Choir and twelve Chamber Ensembles.
The Head of Woodwind, Brass and Percussion will direct woodwind, brass and percussion ensembles, conduct the Symphonic Wind Band, teach individual instrumental lessons and manage faculty staff. The post holder will report to the Head of Music and work alongside other full-time staff, including Heads of Keyboard, Vocal Studies and Strings. Ability as an accompanist and/or the ability to teach within the curriculum might be advantageous, but not essential.
All teachers are expected to contribute to the rich co-curricular life of the College, but there are no residential duties.
As one of the world’s leading schools, and with a strong pioneering heritage, our aim is to embody excellence, independence and empowerment in the education of young women. Music plays a central part in the life of the College. The successful candidate will join a friendly and supportive community of dedicated professionals who believe that girls are at the heart of all we do. We are ambitious for their futures, collectively and individually, and have been so for over 165 years.
