Recruitment and Pathway Initiatives

Lecturer in Popular Music – Songwriting

Career stage: Senior

We are looking to appoint an exceptional teacher to engage and inspire our students as a lecturer in songwriting.

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is a forward-thinking world-class Higher Education Institution. At the leading edge of music and dance training, we provide the highest quality specialist education, reflecting the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice and supporting professional artists’ lifelong career development.

The BA in Music Performance and Industry is a three-year undergraduate programme in popular music. As the post holder, you will join a team of highly-skilled, forward-thinking professionals committed to fresh approaches to learning and teaching. We emphasise creativity as students develop their voice, gaining skills in performance and production. You will teach different ability levels, ranging from students who specialise as producers to teaching entry-level music technology. The teaching delivery will be practical in small classes with some individual provision, and you will also be responsible for creating online content to support learning. This position is an excellent opportunity for a professional songwriter and visionary educator.

As a successful candidate, you will have substantial music industry experience and expertise in songwriting. You will have an understanding of songwriting techniques and how to teach them. You will be able to design schemes of work at all undergraduate levels that involve creating lyrics, melody, harmonic structures, and production techniques across a range of genres with recognised professional expertise in at least one specialism. Previous teaching experience and curriculum design in Higher Education are desirable though not exclusive. The Faculty of Music is committed to innovation in learning and teaching. As the music industry evolves, you will have a crucial role in keeping the programme updated with the latest developments.

The BA in Music Performance and Industry seeks to address the inequality in society by positively encouraging a diverse student and staff membership. We aim to foster an inclusive community that reflects our society. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, pregnancy, and maternity.
