Freelance Singing Workshop Facilitators and Leaders Required
Starling Arts is looking to expand their team of group singing facilitators and musicians to deliver group singing workshops in communities, businesses and schools in London and further afield.
Starling Arts, founded in 2010, provides high quality, fun and accessible group singing activities for wide audiences - most of whom are non-professional singers - in order to enhance well-being, health, musical skills and a sense of community.
This is an exciting and flexible opportunity for experienced or aspiring music facilitators to deliver group singing experiences in communities, businesses and schools. Our facilitators are committed to sharing the joy of music with diverse groups and have the skills to lead singing activities with all abilities and in many different settings.
Applicants should be enthusiastic musicians and/or have experience of running arts or singing groups or choirs. Ideally candidates will have experience of working with diverse groups of people such as children, people with disabilities, and adults of all ages and levels of experience who are non-professional singers. Facilitators will work on a flexible basis, so the opportunity is ideally suited for freelance workshop leaders, musicians and teachers, and singers and actors with experience in music facilitation.
Facilitators will attend a training session prior to delivering any sessions and will be provided with ongoing support from the Starling Arts team in running both regular and one-off sessions. Applicants may be required to shadow existing facilitators before taking on their own assignments. Successful applicants will work with Starling Arts on a self-employed basis, and remain responsible for their own tax and NI contributions, invoicing Starling Arts for any work carried out. Rates of pay start at £20 per hour to £60 per hour, according to experience and level of responsibility within each session.
Please email a copy of your CV, and a covering letter explaining why you are interested in working as a facilitator for Starling Arts, to Anna and Emily at email@example.com with the title ‘Singing Workshop Facilitator’.
Deadline: Thursday 28th February
Starling Arts is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults; applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and obtaining an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Services certificate.
