Radley College

Accompanist in Residence

September 2023

Music is at the heart of the school and the practical experience of music, both as performer and audience, is central. We are looking for an excellent graduate pianist to join our thriving music department. Our team of accompanists is central to the continued flourishing of music at Radley College: there are at least three concerts and 500 instrumental lessons every week, as well as a busy schedule of exams, competitions, chamber music and other ensembles. We are keen to further develop the support we are able to offer our solo musicians and the team of 40 visiting music teachers in preparing for performances but, also, on a more informal basis as part of the day-to-day music-making that fills the department throughout the week. The role will involve working with ambitious pupils working towards Conservatoire or University entrance alongside those at the very start of their musical journeys, helping to ensure that each individual has the opportunity to reach their full potential. For the right candidate, it is also hoped that some piano teaching will be included in the role. There is considerable potential for further involvement in the wider musical life of the College: through further exploring options for piano ensemble music and pupil collaborations, supporting the academic curriculum (particularly preparation for the performance requirements of public exams), involvement in theory and aural teaching, and coaching of ensembles. Likewise, there are plenty of opportunities for the Accompanist in Residence to shape their role, through bringing new ideas to the department or developing their own areas of interest – whether that is in choral music, contemporary music, composition, or another area. We are keen to find someone who is excited about the prospect of being immersed in a vibrant school music department
