The International Opera Academy (IOA) is looking for a Teacher Conducting

This is an unprecedented opportunity for anyone with the ambition to participate in a Specialised programme for Higher Arts Education. At the IOA, singers and repetiteurs (pianists) are educated as professional artists during a two-year postgraduate programme. You will be working in an international context at the bustling artistic site of De Bijloke, at the centre of Ghent. The IOA is allied with Opera Ballet Vlaanderen. 

As a Teacher Conducting, the IOA will expect you to prepare students (with or without conducting experience) for specific conducting assignments required of an opera repetiteur (instrumental and vocal). You will be working closely with our Head of Music, as well with other IOA staff members in a positive and encouraging environment.

We hope you can provide an eclectic work repertoire, focused on backstage chorus or ensembles. For more advanced students, any operatic repertoire can be used to prepare for conducting opera rehearsals.

Regular evaluations on the students’ progress are vital part of this position. For this purpose, we offer a part-time contract for the coming season, with a flexible schedule. The application deadline ends on April 13.

Deadline: April 13, 2023
