Arts Jobs


Music appreciation tutor, Bishopsgate Institute


Bishopsgate Institute runs a learning programme for adults comprising talks, courses, workshops, masterclasses and other classes. These usually take place at lunchtime and in the evening on weekdays, and during the day at weekends. We offer a broad programme – ranging from Performing Arts and Body & Exercise courses to Languages courses – and students come to us to pursue a particular interest, to build their confidence in a particular discipline, to meet like-minded people, and for personal and professional development.

Looking ahead to the Autumn Term 2018, we are planning to add music appreciation to the programme, with one or more introductory sessions running between October and December.

We are looking for a tutor or tutors to deliver these introductory sessions, with a view to developing music appreciation as a more substantial part of the programme in the Spring Term and beyond. Sessions might approach the subject thematically, looking, for example, at a particular musical genre (film music, opera, musical theatre), or they might approach it chronologically, presenting the work of a range of different composers across one or more historical periods. They might be structured like a talk, using recorded music and visual aids, or they might take the form of a demonstration interspersed with discussion and analysis.

We invite expressions of interest, indicating the content and the format of the session or sessions you would like to lead. You will need to be able to demonstrate previous success teaching groups of adults. Our standard hourly rate for tutors is £32.

Please send expressions of interest to Simon Vickery ( by Friday 27th April, including your CV and two referees.
