Senior Orff TutorMusic Makers/Young Voices

We are seeking applications from suitably-qualified professionals for the newly-created position of Senior Orff Tutor to our Music Makers/Young Voices programme. 

The HCCM Music Makers programme for children from the age of 3 years was introduced in 2012 and is based on the music teaching and learning principles of Carl Orff and Zoltán Kodály. Young Voices, for children aged 9-12 years, grew from Music Makers. Young Voices takes the children’s experience and learning further whilst focusing primarily on the voice within the framework of a children’s choir.

In this newly-created position, the Senior Orff Tutor will be responsible to the HCCM Director of Music for teaching the Young Voices group as part of HCCM’s Saturday morning music programme. In addition, the role will include the administrative and mentoring elements necessary to lead and develop the Music Makers/Young Voices Tutor/Assistant team, as well as the business-building aspects required to grow Young Voices in particular and the Music Makers programme in general.
