The Waikato Itinerant Music Scheme (based at Waikato Diocesan School for Girls) provides students with high-quality music tuition within participating schools across the Waikato. 

We seek a qualified, highly effective and inspiring vocal teacher to cover a maternity leave vacancy in 2020 for approximately 10 hours per week. 

Applicants must have:

  • Skills and experience in teaching a wide range of vocal styles
  • A good understanding of the music curriculum (Y9–13)
  • The ability to assist with performance preparation and assessment up to NCEA Level 3
  • Knowledge of Trinity and ABRSM examinations.

The ability to direct both large vocal ensembles (Barbershop and Choral – SATB), and small vocal ensembles (quartets) to a competitive level would be an advantage.

Flexibility within repertoire and a willingness to work with the varying requirements of a diverse range of music departments are expected.

The successful applicant needs to have current NZ teacher registration (preferred) or a Limited Authority to Teach (LAT). A current driver's licence and own transport are also essential for travelling between allocated schools (a mileage allowance will be paid).
