Sistema Scotland’s vision is to improve lives and strengthen communities. Working with children, young people and their families, we focus on early intervention and stimulating generational social change.  By playing music together in ensembles and orchestras, we aim to grow confidence, respect, teamwork and aspiration in the children, young people and communities we work with.

We deliver our work through six Big Noise programmes: in Govanhill in Glasgow, Raploch & Fallin in Stirling Torry in Aberdeen, Douglas in Dundee and Wester Hailes in Edinburgh.

We have vacancies for Musician/Teachers (Upper or Lower Strings) within our team in Big Noise Govanhill, Glasgow.  You will work with the Big Noise team to deliver excellent musical education and learning experiences for our children, young people and communities; this will include instrumental lessons, general musicianship sessions, and group teaching in our afterschool programme, as well as home visits and community performances.  Wherever possible, we will match your musical skills and interests with the different elements of the Big Noise programme, while encouraging and supporting you to develop in other areas.

You will be educated to degree level or equivalent qualification and have professional performing experience. Working with large and varied groups of children and young people is essential, along with a track record of success in teaching children and young people on your specialist instrument.  You will also have a belief in the benefits that a social programme such as Big Noise / Sistema Scotland can have.
