The Royal Academy of Music is a stimulating and friendly environment with a diverse mix of students and staff from over 50 countries. Many of the world’s leading musicians and performers studied with us and we are firmly focused on developing tomorrow’s musical leaders in a number of disciplines including classical performance, composition, opera, jazz and musical theatre.

The role usually consists of second study one-to-one teaching in the HP department (first study applications also welcome) and preparing students for Academy projects (such as the Bach series) with possible opportunities to take classes, coach chamber music and to develop other HP activities within the Academy.

The Historical Performance department is lively and collaborative with an international reputation. Many outstanding performers of the current generation studied here. The department supports and encourages students to realise their full potential across a range of artistic possibilities, encouraging them to be versatile, creative and professional.

You will have a recognised profile as an international performer with a thorough knowledge of a wide-range of repertoire and historical performing traditions. You will be able to advise, mentor and support students in managing their career aspirations and developing their professionalism, along with previous experience of teaching in a conservatoire environment. You will possess technical expertise and excellent communication skills. You will also need to be flexible, practical, collaborative and well organised.
