Instrumental Tutors

Salford Music and Performing Arts Service (MAPAS) are currently looking for more instrumental tutors to join their team, in particular strings, guitar and woodwind. MAPAS is part of Salford Community Leisure Limited and provides Music, Dance and Drama tuition in schools across Salford. We also operate out of school arts centres that involve activities and ensembles in a range of genres for both children and adults.

We are currently looking for experienced woodwind, string and vocal tutors who would be able to take on work teaching instrumental lessons in Salford schools, and also take part in Wider Opportunities projects (whole class tuition). There may be the opportunity for some ensemble leading at our Arts Centre. Instrumental lessons vary from teaching small groups to one-to-one depending on the school's preference. Tutors need to be able to travel between schools - driving is not compulsory and we do our best to fix timetables around transportation needs. Pay for instrumental tuition is £25 per hour.

All MAPAS tutors are engaged on a self-employed basis and there are no set teaching hours guaranteed. However, being self-employed gives you the flexibility to state the days and times YOU are available to work and we do our best to encourage schools to fit with your availability.

Experience of working with children of varying ages is recommended, and we run a strong mentor programme for new tutors to give them support with finding materials, engaging with pupils and answering any questions you may have.

For more details about the work that MAPAS does, please visit our website. If you would like more information about how to apply to become a tutor with MAPAS, please email Tina Parsons on tina.parsons@scll.co.uk
