Halls Head College (HHC) is seeking an innovative and enthusiastic Music Teacher to join their friendly team.
The successful applicant should be committed to promoting Music education and fostering student engagement in a supportive environment where success is celebrated. They will be responsible for delivering the school’s music program in line with the Music Curriculum and should be able to cater to differing learning styles and possess the necessary teaching and learning strategies used to engage and motivate all students.

In addition to classroom teaching, the successful applicant will ideally have well developed interpersonal skills and the ability to build and maintain effective working relationships with students, staff and the school community. As part of the Arts team, the ability to flex to or integrate other Arts contexts - whether performing or in the Visual Arts arena, would also be of value to help foster students’ general skills and understanding of the multi-faceted nature of the Arts. The college's vision for teaching and learning is to ensure that our students are provided with every opportunity to learn and grow in a positive and united school culture, while contributing and adding value to the broader school community.
HHC is an Independent Public School which caters for the very diverse needs of students.

Our college proudly offers a diverse range of pathways to our students in high level Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for direct entrance to University, apprenticeship or TAFE (Technical and Further Education) options. Alternatively, for those students who are unsure of where they wish to head post school, we ensure they have the most competitive currency and skill sets to make well-informed decisions as they move forward.
