Notes in Class Presentations
Having a passion for music is all you need to be able to teach kids how exciting music really is. You'll receive training to show kids how sound works in a presentation-style format using orchestral instruments, video demonstrations, and the ability to play live instruments!
You'll pick up our music van and drive to an elementary school in our county to give the Notes in Class presentation, then drop the music van back at the SLO Symphony office.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
