Grove Community Project, a small independent nursery (for children aged 2-4) in Handsworth, Birmingham has just been awarded a grant from Youth Music for a year-long early years music project. As well as employing me as their Music Leader for 20 days they are also looking for someone to work with me on a more regular basis at the nursery for 40 days across this academic year. The person that we had in mind now has other work and is unable to do it. At very short notice we are looking for someone to take up this exciting opportunity.
My role will be to deliver CPD, deliver some practical activity (both at Grove and the nearby nursery class of James Watt Primary School), support the relationships between the music leader and nominated early years practitioner, mentor the musician, support reflective practice and documentation, and look at music provision across the nursery.
We are looking for a musician who would deliver the weekly practical activity at the nursery. It would suit a musician who is open to child- initiated/adult responsive ways of working and who maybe has some experience of this. It would suit someone who has experienece of early years music but is maybe looking to build a longer-term relationship with a setting and develop their practice. It would be extremely helpful if they had Mondays or Tuesdays free. The fee is £175 per day.
The project is managed by Sarah Wood who is project manager for Grove Community Project.
Please send this to anyone you think might be interested. If they are interested they should get in touch with me by email in the first instance sending a CV or biog and a covering letter stating why they would be interested in being part of the project. I'm also very happy to for people to call me on my mobile 07786 736 861 if they want to know more about the project
Apologies for the very short notice - we would like to start as soon as possible and therefore ask that if people are interested to get in touch asap.
With best wishes
