The Victorian College of the Arts has a significant national reputation and has long established a dynamic, forward-looking presence with a clear mission to prepare artists with a lifelong commitment to making a positive contribution to the profession and the broader community. VCA Music Theatre offers conservatoire-style tertiary education that trains industry-ready, professional performers with a strong sense of individual expression.
We are seeking a talented teacher to join our highly successful Music Theatre team. We are seeking applicants who specialise in teaching vocal technique for music theatre, OR have a portfolio of high-level skills in music theatre accompaniment and theory teaching. You will come to us with experience teaching at a tertiary level, recognised standing in the profession, and the capacity to provide relevant industry experience to support student and graduate achievement.
You will be interested in becoming part of a passionate team of professional teaching artists who are all autonomous, creative and collaborative. Your teaching practice will demonstrate a clear commitment to continually developing innovative practices that respond to the integration of the three skill areas of music theatre performance across diverse styles and the need to prepare students for diverse professional careers. You will have a track record or the potential to engage in the research profile of the Faculty.
You will successfully prepare and deliver studio-based practical training, collaborate with and mentor academic staff in the development and delivery of curriculum and contribute to artistic projects. In addition, the position requires substantial subject coordination and academic oversight responsibilities, so demonstrable skills in these areas are required, whether through previous experience in a similar tertiary positions or other professional roles.
This is a full time, continuing position available from January 2019 (or as negotiated). The role will be based at the Southbank campus in the heart of Melbourne's cultural precinct.
Close date: 17 June 2018
