Bring singing to life for children through a high-profile Music Hub.
In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people at the heart of decision making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective, and efficient. By sharing facilities and expertise with Westminster City Council and Hammersmith & Fulham Council, we’re able to offer joined-up services for children, young people and their families that are constantly evolving and improving.
Our award-winning Tri-borough Music Hub provides and champions music education for children and young people across some 166 schools. We work in partnership with the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal College of Music and a range of other diverse organisations to deliver in-school, after-school and Saturday provision, as well as regular musical performance events. We are one of the leading Music Hubs in the country and are known for our innovation.
This is an exciting opportunity to change children’s lives for the better through our high-profile Music Hub. Leading and managing a team of Vocal and Instrumental Tutors, you’ll champion a progressive and forward-thinking approach to the teaching and practice of vocal music-making. The variety and scope of your responsibilities makes this a role that will be full of opportunity, challenge and achievement. Across a range of schools and activities, you’ll ensure an inclusive approach runs across all vocal activity. You will make sure young people are listened to in our Youth Voice Council. And of course, you’ll get practically involved in making music - from leading choirs and teaching vocal techniques, through to conducting large-scale performances at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall.
