Our Mission

Apply Now

We created Conductive Music to design and deliver programmes of music-making and new technologies workshops for children from challenging backgrounds, and we are now approaching our 10th birthday!

In 2020/21, we partnered with 18 Music Education Hubs (MEH) to reach 9,000 students across 200 schools, doubling our targets annually. We learned how to create, develop and maintain uninterrupted education provision in our field through online learning models. Our Blended Learning Playground brings together in person, online & on-demand learning to meet changes across the pandemic and the digital divide.

We reach out to children, to help them create their own digital instruments and find their own musical voice through composition, co-creation, and performance in a supportive learning environment for all abilities. We also support teachers, through a dynamic Professional Development provision, to boost their confidence in working across Arts and Technologies – the STEAM approach.

Our programmes operate at the intersection of music, technology, & STEM subjects using our skilled team’s expertise, and the widest-reaching technologies to allow us to involve all students, anywhere, support their teachers, and amuse their parents. We craft positive experiences with the creative technology tools we use, such as Ableton or Bandlab for composition, Scratch for entry-level coding, and MakeCode for musical video game creation.

We look forward to welcoming you to our dynamic team of creatives, friends, and passionate people, dedicated to helping every child believe that ‘I can do it too!’

The Project

Inspire: Reboot (IR) provides 21,400 young people from challenging backgrounds with life-changing skills in music-making & creative technology. We will connect with 2140 teachers & 25 nationwide partners using the Index of Multiple Deprivation, prioritising SEN, EAL, PP, FSM, PRUs.

IR is delivered through an innovative combination of desk-side, remote, on-demand, and professional development sessions. It provides schools in low provision areas with creativity-boosting educational resources. Our STEAM approach puts music at the heart of STEM skills development through ambition, excellence & talent.

Core Responsibilities

The core purpose of this role is to ensure exceptional workshop delivery in-line with our Inspire: Reboot provision. The Workshop Leader will be required to maintain on-the-ground relationships with schools, teachers, and other educational professionals.

Person Specification

Essential Skills and Experience 

  • Music degree or demonstrable understanding of music theory, improvisation, composition, dot-and-grid notation, music production, live performance, including singing.

  • 1-year experience of whole class tuition at Primary Level – this could include instrumental music or bespoke workshops either in-school or out-of-school contexts (festivals, venues, outdoor).

  • In-depth knowledge of at least one DAW (Bandlab, SoundTrap, Ableton, Cubase, ProTools etc.) and the ability to switch between them.

  • Able to travel country-wide, maximum of a week at a time, to deliver workshops/CPDs at festivals and conferences.

  • Basic understanding of block-based coding (Scratch, MakeCode suite, Roblox, etc.), or basic knowledge of JavaScript, Python, C# or similar. Many of our workshops involve designing Musical Video Games on Microsoft Arcade.

  • Computing skills: GoogleSuite and Zoom or similar.

  • Have the right to work in the UK.

Desirable Skills and Experience 

  • High Proficiency in one musical instrument and/or music production skills.

  • Experience in working with large groups of children in assemblies or festivals.

  • Experience in delivering teacher training sessions.

  • Experience in teaching both online and in-person.

  • Ability to break down complicated concepts into simple bites, that primary age children can understand.

  • A willingness to learn new workshops on a regular basis: these will involve any of the STEAM subjects, from building synthesizers, to coding adventures, to making new musical instruments.

  • Ability to react well under pressure and with no notice: anything can happen in a school – what if the software you were planning to use gets blocked?

  • Photoshop and Premiere or Equivalent

It’s a plus if…

  • You are based in East London as most of our London sessions take place there.

  • Have a passion for Arcade video games as you will be designing lots of them.

  • You speak multiple languages: you may end up teaching with it, but as most of our students are multi-lingual, it is quite important to be able to empathise with them.

  • You have experience working or touring abroad.

  • You are able to work with Windows, Mac, iPads, tablets and whichever new things will be released in the future.

  • You are interested in the field of Education and willing to learn, test, and measure new approaches.
