Get Involved! Musical Mentors and Making Music Matter Seek Volunteer Student Music Teachers
Get Involved With Columbia Music Students Making a Difference!
As we begin the new academic year, the Department of Music would like to call our students' attention to two initiatives, led by your fellow students, to bring musical experience and enrichment into the lives of our community's public schools. If you're interested in putting your musical energies into this rewarding service, here are two opportunities to do so.
1) Want to pass on the joy of music to a child? The Columbia Musical Mentors program is seeking instrumental instructors for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. We provide weekly, one-on-one lessons to elementary school students at P.S. 145 (105th Street and Amsterdam) who would not otherwise be able to afford them. No teaching experience is necessary, just a willingness to share your enthusiasm for music. All musicians, regardless of instrument can participate. For more information, please attend one of our interest meetings on Wednesday 9/22 at 7:30pm in the Lerner Piano Lounge. If you have any questions, please contact Zack Susel at email@example.com.
2) Flute instructors needed! The Making Music Matter Program, a small non-profit group started by several members of CU Wind Ensemble last year to raise money and volunteer to teach 4th and 5th grade students at PS 125 is urgently seeking flute teachers for our program! It's a fun program, under the auspices of the Morningside Area Alliance, where you really get to know the kids and get some fantastic and rewarding teaching experience. If you are interested, please reply directly to L. Hopwood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in supporting either of these efforts, or others like them, please get in touch with me directly at email@example.com
