The Arts and Creative Learning Team, City of Edinburgh Council, seeks a musician to develop a resource for use in Primary 1 to 3 classes on the topic of ‘Music and Technology’.
This resource will be presented in an A4 folder, with DVDs and CDs. A copy will be given to every Primary establishment in Edinburgh, including Special schools. It will be developed through workshops in collaboration with selected Primary schools over a period of ten weeks. The content produced, which may be original or from non-copyright repertoire, should be available for City of Edinburgh Council to use and reproduce both on paper and online. The resource will be filmed as a guide for teachers.
We are offering an all inclusive fee of £250 per day, based on 10 days in school with a further 5 for preparation, and are keen to work in close collaboration with the selected musician. All copyright will be assigned to City of Edinburgh Council. The musician will be fully acknowledged and may use the commission within their own portfolio.

Details:
– Fee: £250 per day
– Completion date: 1 February 2017

Applications should include:
