Oundle School is one of the country’s leading HMC co-educational boarding and day schools, and enjoys a strong reputation for academic excellence supported by outstanding pastoral care. We are seeking an exceptional Music Fellow to help develop and inspire our pupils, and who is able to participate in and contribute to the life of the School as a whole. The Music Fellow’s function is ostensibly two-fold:
Ensuring the quality of tailor-made provision for as many pupils as possible, helping to foster a love and enthusiasm from the pupils in their music-making as they prepare for music exams, auditions and performances. To offer first-class support, publicity and outreach for all events, offering innovative poster design, programmes, media interfacing via the school website, Twitter and Facebook. The Music Fellow will be proactive in liaising with the Director of Music and Heads of Instruments, assisting and supporting the Director of Music, particularly in relation to large scale projects.
The Music Fellow will also act as a tutor to a Boarding or Day House, and will be expected to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the School.
This will suit someone with energy and commitment who is hungry for experience and is looking to develop and enhance their career. Applicants must have a degree and diploma or equivalent qualification in Music, along with strong keyboard skills and excellent musicianship.
