Beginner pupils are generally taught in small groups (around 4 pupils), moving to paired or 1:1 lessons as they progress. There are ensembles for strings (junior and senior), wind etc, and our Jazz Ensemble which is playing at the Ealing Jazz Festival this summer.
We provide separate theory and aural tuition so you can get on with the instrumental teaching. We also have a staff accompanist who is available for pupils to work with on 4 Saturdays per term. QYMC is a friendly place to work and our pupils are lovely and generally pretty well motivated. There is also an orchestra which we encourage pupils to take part in. The pay rate is currently £32.50 (£34.50 after 3 years with us) but likely to increase slightly in September.
If you are genuinely interested in teaching and have some experience, please complete and return the QYMC_Application_form 2018 along with a current teaching CV. No performers’ biogs.
Around 3.5/4 hours teaching. From beginners to around grade 8. A mixture of small groups, pairs and 1:1.
Around 3 hours teaching. From beginners to around grade 5/6. A mixture of small groups, pairs and 1:1. Mostly cornet/trumpet but could be any brass as we’re likely to start at least one beginner class in September.
Around 4 hours teaching. Mostly 1:1 drum kit pupils, a number of whom have done some grades. Currently one paired xylophone lesson, and we are keen to increase the tuned percussion element. There is a Latin Percussion Ensemble which has been running for nearly 3 years with many of the same pupils and we are keen to start a beginner group in September.
We have two violin teacher vacancies from September 2016. Both are for around 3.5 hours teaching on Saturday mornings. Both have a mixture of group, paired and individual tuition from beginners to around grade 6/7. We also have 4 viola pupils so at least one post will need a suitably qualified and experienced violin and viola teacher.
