“Being a teacher at Cantabile means working with a group of positive and professional teachers and staff. The organisation and support of the administration allows teachers to wholly focus on their teaching in the classroom.

All the teachers want to provide the best quality of lessons for the students at Cantabile, and observing them during my training taught me so much about being a teacher. It brings me joy to watch the students’ progress in their musical journeys and reach milestones. The teacher culture at the school makes it so enjoyable to teach.”
