Making Music began in 1994 and has been rapidly growing in recent years to include dance lessons.
[...]The program brings music education to Boston public schools. Volunteers offer instrumental, vocal or dance lessons to elementary school students. The year ends with a recital where students and volunteers perform what they’ve learned. Volunteers introduce children to music or dance and form a bond with students.
Time commitment is 2-3 hours per week for the entire academic year. No previous teaching experience is required, but volunteers must have a little background in an instrument, singing or dancing. Volunteers are assigned to students based on instrument or area of interest, availability and skill level.
Making Music visits three Boston schools: Farragut Elementary, the Thomas A. Edison school and the JP Manning school.
