What our teachers say


I have worked in two schools for 1st Note Education. Lesson plans were easy to follow and relevant to National Curriculum guidelines. I was also given feedback on my teaching which was really helpful. Payment was always reliable and on time. I enjoyed the different schools and learnt a lot about the primary music curriculum.

Krystal Bennett

I am a piano and cello teacher and highly recommend 1st Note Education for their excellent‚work in finding music teachers suitable jobs and vacancies in Primary schools. Their Director is always very professional, friendly and easy to work with, and provides extra personal care to teachers, taking care to get to know each person’s individual gifts and talents, therefore, sourcing the best possible schools and areas for successful teaching placements

Amelia Young | BA Hons Music Oxford University

I have used the 1st Note scheme for a year and I find it develops a child’s creativity without losing sight of the fun aspect of music-making. Regular assessment and observation keep me up-to-date with teaching styles and methods. The company offers a two-way feedback process so that curriculum can be developed to best match the pupil’s range of abilities. I have found working with 1st Note a very professional experience. Kevin Bashford QTS
