Musical Director required

Woodhouse Prize Band are looking for a Musical Director


An extremely rare opportunity has arisen to appoint a Musical Director to lead our wonderful (and full) band. The Band is very proud of all it has achieved and is more than your ‘typical’ community band. We are looking for someone to:


  • Continue improving the band’s already set high standards of music making, building on our reputation to entertain audiences • Be innovative, encouraging and appreciate the ethos of the band – we are hardworking whilst enjoying making music together!
  • Build confidence and encourage individuals to reach their full potential, strengthening the band • Share the Band’s passion and values; patience, encouragement, hardworking, family-orientated (we have members aged from 8 to 82) and fun!
  • Play an involved part in all aspects of the band, become part of our band family!


We are a full, very well-run band, with an excellent mix of concerts throughout the year, including a Summer and Christmas concert of our own. We are non-contesting and gain our kicks from our excellent concert performances.


We have our own Bandroom with an extensive library of music situated in Woodhouse, Sheffield, S13, close to the M1 and Sheffield Parkway and currently rehearse Sunday mornings (10:30 – 12:30) and Wednesday or Thursday evenings (to be negotiated for the right candidate)


For more information, we encourage you to visit the Band’s Facebook page where you will get a flavour of the band, or visit: or of course, please give us a call.
