About this program

There are few things that bring people together the way that music does. Here is your opportunity to work with kids and help them gain self-confidence and expression through music.

As a volunteer on this program, you should have a passion for music and have the ability to create your own music lesson plans and work independently.

In the past, volunteers have focused on teaching the following:


  • Musical Instrument lessons: guitar, flute, maraca, etc.

  • Singing (experience in singing or directing choirs is a huge benefit!)

  • Traditional Music Lessons (cultural sharing among the children)

Volunteers with experience in music, knowledge of music theory, and practical experience will be especially successful in this volunteer role.
