As Head of Strings, you will oversee the direction of all string-based ensembles and chamber music alongside organising regular faculty concerts, masterclasses and the Chamber Music Festival.

If you are a skilled teacher and ensemble leader with an ability to inspire young musicians we would be delighted to hear from you.
