Laxton Junior School is a thriving, independent, co-educational day school with 260 children, aged 4 to 11, situated in the beautiful market town of Oundle. Music is much valued here, and musical talent is nurtured through music assemblies, performance opportunities, choirs, ensembles and more. The majority of pupils in the Junior years take individual music lessons with an extensive team of visiting music teachers, delivering approximately 220 every week on any instrument the child wishes to learn. Theory and aural is also taught.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Visiting Music Teacher to deliver guitar lessons across the full 4 to 11 age range. There is also an expectation that you might also teach some lessons at Oundle School, the senior school. The number of hours will vary according to the number of students wishing to learn the guitar, but is currently in the region of 5 to 6 hours per week.
To be successful, you will need to have a performance diploma or music degree, be willing to engage in ongoing professional development, and have experience of teaching music to children.
If you are passionate about music and fostering a love of music in children, complete an application form and you will hear back from us soon after the closing date.
