Candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply: woodwind pedagogy; special educational needs; historically informed performance and pedagogy. Candidates should have the ability to situate their practice within rigorous cultural, theoretical and historical contexts.
We recognise the many benefits of a diverse workforce and are committed to ensuring an inclusive place to work, live and study. We particularly encourage applications from women and members of minority groups, who are underrepresented across the Department as a whole.
You will deliver teaching (both practice-based and theory-led) on the MA in Music Education: Instrumental and Vocal Teaching and will also help to develop new types of teaching at MA level.
