Music is a common source of inspiration all over the world, and this unique project allows volunteers to focus on helping local students to express themselves through music. By volunteering to assist with music lessons in schools, you’re able to use you musical background to foster enthusiasm for it in students.
Music volunteers lead a classroom music lesson, helping students to explore new sounds, instruments and skills. Music lessons in Ecuador often revolve around playing the guitar, melodica and recorder, but if you’re able to bring other instruments then you’re welcome to introduce new ones.
Students are generally aged between 3-12 years old and have an early interest in learning music. Your lessons can also help with casual English understanding.
You are not required to have experience in teaching music to participate on this project, though any experience you do have will be useful as you’ll be teaching the class on your own or with another volunteer.
Please note this project is not available in July and August. During these times, volunteers will transfer to the School Break project, where you can assist with preparing songs, dances and other music-related activities.Apply now
