Teaching Vacancies

The Pizzicato Effect is now recruiting!

The Pizzicato Effect is Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s flagship community music program offering free instrumental tuition (violin, viola, cello) to students living in the City of Hume. Two attractive positions are currently open for commencement in Term 1, 2021.

The program is closely aligned with the principles of El Sistema, the internationally celebrated music program in Venezuela that promotes the benefits of communal music-making to children’s development.

Continuing the MSO’s long association with the City of Hume, the program is based at our host venue in Broadmeadows and runs on Monday and Wednesday afternoons during the Victorian school term. In 2021, the program will support around 70 children from 25 different local schools in the City of Hume council region.
