Lecturer: Professional Studies (Instrumental Music Tuition)
Leeds Conservatoire wishes to appoint a Lecturer with module co-ordination responsibilities for the Instrumental Music Tuition module beginning in January 2021.
This module develops the skills and understanding that are required to deliver one-to-one and small group instrumental tuition and examines pedagogical frameworks and processes. It forms part of the programme’s professional studies strand and its commitment to enhancing employment opportunities and a portfolio career. It aims to provide students with the skills necessary to deliver tuition to individuals or small groups. It will make students aware of the importance of rigorous and purposeful planning as well as focusing on the personal characteristics of a good teacher. Students will learn how to approach a range of scenarios ranging from teaching beginners to advanced students, one to one lessons, group tuition and ensemble coaching, self-employment, business skills, working as a freelance musician managing a portfolio career.
A presentation analysing a teaching session and an essay are used as assessment instruments, with lectures and seminars being delivered both on campus and online.
The role involves module coordination responsibilities. It is expected that the successful candidate will deliver all the teaching for the module to a diverse cohort in terms of musical specialism and experience. Assessment and marking are also key responsibilities on all modules.
Ideally, applicants will have experience of working as an instrumental music teacher and be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of contemporary music education working practices, including an understanding of pedagogy. They will be able to communicate key concepts effectively, provide inspiring delivery, and understand different access routes to developing a career in the music industry.
