Student Teaching trains and hires University music students to give quality, affordable instrumental lessons to schoolchildren around Sheffield.
The Income Support Fund offers a discounted price to families below the poverty line, offering
one-to-one lessons for a third of the national average for private music tuition.
My role includes overseeing all short-term operations and long-term business strategy, training and managing a team of Student Teachers, marketing and financial plans, graphic and web design, co-writing the syllabus, pitching to and liaising with the department heads at schools, and teaching one-to-one, classroom and workshop sessions. I hope to expand this project across Sheffield, and to integrate our organisation with the Music Hub and the University of Sheffield to become an integral constituent of the National Plan for Music Education in England.
