You will have excellent knowledge of sung European languages and of mainstream operatic repertoire and be a highly experienced keyboard executant. You will be enthusiastic, inspiring, accessible to students and have a can-do approach, all underpinned by second-to-none rapport with staff and students alike. You will also have the ability to be flexible, practical and highly organised with a high degree of professionalism and independence. Experience of working with young, sometimes changing voices at a formative stage of technical development is essential.
