Term Time Casual Instrumental Strings Teacher – Cello – Lower Strings 2020

Samford Valley Steiner School is looking to hire a casual term time lower strings cello teacher to commence in 2020. Two half days per week of cello teaching (possibilities for extra hours if willing to take a before school cello ensemble and private students). Ideally the applicant would be available on a Monday and Wednesday for the role. We would consider applicants as well who are able to teach both upper and lower strings to a good pedagogical level and are interested in combining with another role to form extra days. 

We are seeking passionate music educators with a sound pedagogical understanding of teaching their instrumental area. Experience conducting primary level ensembles will be highly regarded as will the ability to accompany on piano. As this will be mainly a primary teaching role, we are also looking for cello teachers experienced with teaching the foundation years on the instrument and setting up correct string technique. Teacher registration is highly desirable as our school is structured to have class ensembles during the day as part of the curriculum. (If you don’t have teacher registration, a registered teacher will be in the room with you).

 There is a possibility of future work as our programme is expanding. The school hires you as an independent contractor, so you are paid by the school for hours worked and only need to invoice for private students. The lesson groups are kept small (usually only 2 per lesson). The school is in a beautiful natural environment with a fantastic new music building. Music is very important within the Steiner curriculum and the instrumental programme is highly valued within the school.

To apply please email your resume and cover letter to Zoe Akeroyd, Instrumental Music Coordinator zakeroyd@samfordsteiner.qld.edu.au
