What skills and experience we're looking for

The successful applicant will be an outstanding singer and singing teacher who enjoys working with young people. Experience of teaching singing to students at a secondary school age from beginner to Grade 8 is essential. Experience of preparing students for ABRSM examinations, and the performing requirements of GCSE Music, is highly desirable.

Peripatetic teachers at St. Michael’s Catholic Grammar School are self-employed and work closely with the school and parents. The hourly rate for instrumental and vocal tuition from September 2022 is £39.00. We expect there to be at least a full day of teaching available (possibly two full days).

What the school offers its staff

St. Michael’s is a selective school with a distinctive Catholic ethos. Students are very well behaved and the school is a very pleasant working environment. Music is well-established within the school, with frequent performance opportunities available to students. The department currently comprises the Director of Music and 14 self-employed peripatetic music teachers. The department has five air-conditioned practice rooms available for instrumental/vocal lessons, a large class teaching room, and drum room. There are a broad range of extra-curricular opportunities available to students, including two orchestras, two choirs, Jazz Band, Flute Ensemble and a Wind Ensemble. There are ensemble concerts, Chamber Concerts for soloists and small ensembles, and musical theatre productions. Music plays an important role in the Catholic life of the school, and the department has a history of concert tours to Europe such as Prague and Amsterdam. An ABRSM Private Visit is organised annually.
