Assist the Music teacher to teach different instruments, singing, and more. You'll also have the opportunity to teach Drama, English and a choice of other subjects, if you'd like to.

You'll work one-to-one and in small groups with the children to assist them with their music and really give them the attention they need.

Class sizes vary between 20 and 30 children in each class and you'll teach children between the ages of 5 and 18, depending on which school you're at.

You'll be involved in teaching a number of different instruments and groups:

  • Guitar
  • Recorder
  • Keyboards / Piano
  • Choir
  • Instrumental group
  • Ukulele

Lessons generally last for 40 minutes and the school day runs from around 8:55 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Your working day will be around 4 to 5 hours of teaching and preparing for your lessons.

Minimum Program duration is 4 weeks and up to 24 weeks, minimum age is 18. No qualifications necessary, but you should have very good knowledge of at least 1 musical instrument.

Program price ranges from $2,275 for 4 weeks and includes:

  • Arranging your Programme,
  • Full pre-departure support and assistance,
  • Payment Protection insurance Accommodation
  • Meeting you at the nearest Airport
  • Transfer to your accommodation
  • Induction/Orientation
  • Full pre-departure support
  • Local in-country team support and backup

There are many ethnic children from underprivileged communities as well as many different communities and countries (Maori, Somalia, Ethiopia, Tonga and Samoa). Your teaching can help them integrate into the normal Kiwi culture. A very enjoyable and worthwhile project!

You'll live in a centrally located hostel that is friendly and relaxing, making it ideal for long-term stays. You'll share a room with other volunteers. There is a communal kitchen and storage area for cooking meals and plenty of space to relax.

Entertainment at your accommodation includes cheap internet access, TV and free pool table. You are literally a stroll from the Sky Tower, harbor and waterfront and very close to the main train station and shopping district.

Food is not provided on this project, but Auckland has restaurants to suit all tastes.
