DD8 music is thrilled to be looking for volunteers to involve in running our youth and adult music groups and including you as a part of our friendly and welcoming team. We are building a person-centred volunteer programme where volunteers from all backgrounds and abilities are welcomed and supported.
We run guitar groups, as well as groups focussed on a mix of instruments and more free flowing creative jamming. These sessions will provide you the opportunity to guide and mentor our young people and adults while they try out instruments, learn and improve in their musical abilities and develop themselves and their confidence as well. Through our support and training, this role will also help you develop and grow your skills and confidence and be a great place to meet new and interesting people.
This volunteering role will involve a healthy mixture of helping to move music equipment and instruments to our group activity locations, setting up the rooms in preparation of the activities, and tidying up/taking equipment and instruments back, as well as helping during sessions.
Whilst the groups are in session, this role will allow you to supervise and give advice, encouragement, and support to the young people as well as the opportunity to build a rapport with them whilst our staff deliver their session plans. Sessions can either take a more structured, or free form style, so this role will be perfect for you not only if you crave structure, but also if you prefer a more easy-going environment with more space for spontaneous creativity.
This role would be a great opportunity either if you already have some musical ability and knowledge that you want to use, grow, or improve or if you want to help kick start your musical interests through helping others! This role is not only perfect for those with musical interests, as there’s lots of exciting ways of getting involved which can be tailored around you, and your interests and we have plenty of other roles besides!
