Lewisham Music is a new charity, established in April 2017. It is the former Music Service for Lewisham.  As lead music education hub organisation and the largest music education organisation in the borough, we support the music education of over 6,000 children every week. We offer a wide range of musical activities to schools and young people in Lewisham and work with an exciting range of partners.

We require enthusiastic and creative music leaders and teachers to join our team who have skills and experience in teaching the following: 

  •  Brass
  • Cello
  • Guitar and ukulele
  • Violin
  • Woodwind

We are particularly interested in recruiting strings (upper and lower) and woodwind tutors with availability to work at our Saturday Music Centre which runs from 9.30am to 1.45pm on Saturdays during term time.

Tutors need to be able to teach from beginner level up to Grade 7/8. We will prioritise teachers with whole class ensemble teaching (WCET) experience.

We’ll offer you the opportunity to make a real difference to our local community. We also offer professional development opportunities.  

This is a really exciting time to join Lewisham Music, to work with our schools and hub partners to secure the best provision and outcomes for Lewisham children and young people and their families.  


Tutors will work in Lewisham maintained schools and academies, as well as in Lewisham Music after school and Saturday music centres and in collaboration with hub partners as required.
