Volunteering on a Music Project in Jamaica

Reggae Dance ClassThe Music Project is a community based volunteer project, which allows local children and teenagers to develop their awareness and appreciation of music, and learn how to play a musical instrument. The project focuses on both traditional Jamaican music and incorporates the cultural influences of volunteers from all over the world.

Music volunteers will share their knowledge and expertise by teaching children aged 6-18 to play the keyboard, guitar, violin, flute and drums. Volunteers should be enthusiastic, dedicated individuals who specialise in music education or be able to teach children how to play one or more of these instruments.

Teaching Music with Projects Abroad

Your role as a volunteer on the Music Project is to teach children how to play the instruments, how to improvise melodies and how to compose and arrange music within specified guidelines. You will also teach the students how to read and notate music and allow the children to listen, analyse, and describe a wide variety of musical pieces.

Local KidsVolunteers are also encouraged to help the students understand the relationship between music and the other arts, and develop workshops, focussing on different types of music. Music education can play a vital role in a child’s development and increasing their exposure to music and exploring their emotions and feelings about certain types of music can engage some children where other subjects fail.

Volunteers should be enthusiastic about music and able to inspire the children to develop both theoretical and practical musical knowledge and skills. Projects Abroad and a partner organisation provide all the necessary materials and resources you may need during your time on this project.

Volunteers should be willing to work in the afternoons as the children attend school in the morning.

You can join the Music Project in Jamaica for just two weeks if you don't have time to join us for a month or more. This project has been selected by our local colleagues as being suitable for short term volunteering for both the placement and you, the volunteer; however, please be aware that you may not be able to make the same impact as someone volunteering for a longer period.
