Sistema Scotland is looking for two temporary Support Musicians to work with the Big Noise Torry after school programme. Ideally working 2.30-5pm, Monday-Thursday in term time only, however this is negotiable.

This pioneering programme drew its initial inspiration from El Sistema in Venezuela and its vision is to transform lives with music. Sistema delivers on its vision through the creation of Big Noise programmes within communities.

Since its inception in 2007, the programme has grown and developed into a multi-faceted and immersive music education and social development programme which uses the orchestra as a learning community.

Support musicians participate in all elements of the After School Club, including set-up, walking lines, supervising snack, and pack up. During sessions, support musicians assist the musician delivering the lesson by modelling on instruments or with voices, adjusting children's posture or hand shape, or delivering 1:1 lessons for children who require more support.

Over the course of the year support musicians begin to deliver chunks of lessons and may be asked to come in for additional hours to support or deliver in school sessions as well.

This is a temporary opportunity from September 2018 to June 2019 and is open to individuals who are living (or planning to live) within a commutable distance of Aberdeen. Rate of pay: £10.40 per hour. The successful applicant will be subject to PVG check.

They are also accepting applications for cover support musicians to work as needed when musicians are on leave or unwell.
