Instrumental and vocal teaching in Derbyshire

Become an instrumental and vocal tutor accredited by Derby & Derbyshire Music Partnership.

DDMP logoInstrumental and vocal teaching is undertaken by instrumental teachers who have been accredited by the Derby & Derbyshire Music Partnership.

Where there is demand, as an accredited self-employed  teacher, we are able to give you the opportunity to create a time-table, tailored to your needs. Full and part-time instrumental and vocal teachers currently work with over 10,000 pupils each week. 

We accept applications for accreditation all year round but we are especially looking for:

  • North East Derbyshire
    Drum teachers
  • South East Derbyshire
    Upper strings
  • Derby City
    Vocal teachers
  • South Derbyshire
    Guitar teachers

The accreditation process

Accreditation begins with a screening application and if successful, formally starts after an interview shortly after. With two terms of guidance from a mentor, accreditation is granted after a series of successful observations.

Accredited teachers are provided with professional development opportunities, mentoring and teaching resources and can access a range of subsidies to help with the cost of lessons for pupils and their families.

Accredited teachers are not employed by Derby & Derbyshire Music Partnership and therefore have no contractual obligations to it.

Enhanced DBS checks

Instrumental and vocal teaching involves substantial access to children and applicants will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check as part of any recruitment process.

A DBS check is a record of a person’s criminal convictions and cautions, carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service.

An Enhanced DBS check covers spent and unspent convictions, reprimands, cautions, and final warnings and any other relevant information held by police, plus a check of DBS barred lists. Any information shown will be used to ascertain a candidate’s suitability for the role.
