Being creative in designing and introducing new ways of learning you will use the orchestra to grow children's confidence, respect, aspiration, drive and understanding. As part of the team you will develop innovative ways to engage children and families, including home visits and community performances.
Educated to degree level or equivalent, you must have experience of working with large and varied groups of children along with a track record of success in giving music instruction to children on your specialist instrument (lower strings - 'cello or double bass).
