    We are seeking two talented and enthusiastic string and woodwind players to volunteer in a new community Music School in Accra, Ghana.

    Our Music School provides a comprehensive and rounded music education programme at an affordable cost for young people from the age of 6 to 18 years. The organisation was founded by three young music students with the aim of sharing their love of music by providing participatory music activities to those who might otherwise have very limited opportunities to access music education, giving them additional future career options.

    Our school offers group and individual lessons on Saturday morning between 9.30am - 2pm and three week days at 4.30pm to 7pm. Instruments offered in group or individual tuition are: recorder and violin to start with, then as the students progress the flute, clarinet, trumpet, cornet, trombone, guitar, viola and cello will be introduced.
