• good quality premises with professionally maintained pianos
• SEND specialist support 
• 30 day paid notice for every student

We have blocks of teaching becoming available through the next year, as we continue to expand and grow. Each block consists mainly of one to one teaching, plus potentially some group teaching: 3 children or 3 adults, beginners.

We are looking for someone who is interested to commit to the organisation - to our values and ambitions, to the students, teachers, families and staff.

We’re looking for the right person to join us as we continue to innovate and grow over the next years.

Positions are self-employed, hours are by agreement and based during term time, with some additional holiday teaching by agreement.
