Volunteer for BCMG's Learning & Participation Programme 

Being a professional classical musician involves much more than just performing on stage. Whether freelance or employed by a salaried orchestra, many musicians choose to make leading or participating in creative workshops a core or additional part of their career. Though the picture has improved enormously, many conservatoires and universities don't prepare musicians for this aspect of a professional music career. This can lead to a musicians first experience of this kind of work being in the classroom with a class of 30 children! 

Whether your motivation is to improve your CV, get experience working in this fascinating area, or you have aspirations to teach young people, volunteering at BCMG's creative workshops for young people could help you develop your career. 

What will I be doing?

  • Supporting small group activity
  • Helping children with additional needs enjoy the workshop to their fullest extent
  • Assisting with instrumental technique and learning
  • Helping organise and handle instruments and other resources
