Experience Required


    A background in music is required to participate on this project and ideally you should be able to read music and we would love volunteers to make a commitment of around six months. Knowledge of how to set up musical performances and a background in teaching music are also useful but not necessary. Volunteers must be able to work without supervision and be able to lead others.
