Cardiff Steiner School is looking for a part-time Music Teacher for our children age 6 to 16, with expansion up to age 18 in subsequent years. You’ll be a part of our pioneering and passionate team, at an exciting time in the growth and development of this diverse and confident, young school.
The Music Teacher coordinates the music programme for the School including class singing and instrumental music instruction in pentatonic flute from age 6 and recorders from age 8. Musical notation and music theory is introduced from age 8/9. From age 8 children sing in choral groups and participate in instrumental ensembles. As they progress students work towards performing instrumental and choral compositions in performances, assemblies, plays and community events, throughout the year. We have several peripatetic instrumental teachers who visit the school and contribute to our vibrant, musical culture.
You’ll be a committed, creative and resourceful individual with a joy and enthusiasm for working with children, and the ability to relate to and inspire them. You’ll have high level of musical knowledge and understanding.
You’ll have proven experience of teaching children music, an interest in Steiner-Waldorf education, and be able to deliver a developmentally appropriate Music programme for the School that conforms to the principles and methods of the Steiner Waldorf curriculum.
We have an experienced team of qualified Steiner Teachers who can support you with this, as well as a supportive professional development programme of peer mentoring, observation and peer school visits.
