A friend of mine is a qualified piano teacher with a 100 percent pupil pass rate. To supplement private teaching lessons she would like to teach keyboard skills in local schools and colleges. Has anyone any idea how to approach this line of work in Spain? I presume it is agency work, which is fine. Thanks!

Hi Mike,

your frien can either send her cv or call schools straight away. There are no agencies, you do it yourself

Hi Nati; Thanks for that. A correspondent on another forum told me she would need a Grade 8. (this is top professor status): A BRB (criminal record clearance: no problem). A Teacher's Certificate. This prompted me to reply:

Hi ********
 
Jackie Heath; pianist. Right! Grade 7s   …   not Grade 8. No CRB yet but it wouldn’t be a problem in acquiring one. No teacher’s certificate as in ‘scroll’. However, both in London and here in Spain privately tutored pupils: In the UK all passed with honours at The Royal College of Music.
 
WHAT THE PAPERS SAY: “Absolutely wowed the audience.” - The Leader. “Very talented indeed. They brought the house down.” - The Coastrider. “One of the most outstanding jazz outfits in the Costa Blanca.” RoundTown News (inc. a near full page illustrated glowing report in the same newspaper. “One of the best crowd pullers on the Costa Blanca.” Mike Walsh. ‘A Place in the Sun.’
 
For us ‘oldies’ it is a strange world we now live in. In 1998 I lectured at the University of Liverpool. No qualifications. The fact that I was indisputably Britain’s best-selling and most popular poet was enough. At their invitation I write for the Extramadura Tourist Board, A Place in the Sun magazine; scores of similar, yet I have no formal writing qualifications! As a devotee of classical music I wonder if Beethoven and Mozart could get a job in today’s market; or Constable be recognised as a painter?
 
If you have any openings for the undoubtedly talented Jackie Heath I would appreciate your keeping her in mind.
 
Best wishes, Michael (Walsh).
