ORGANIZATION: Boston Raising Powerful Musicians

  • 2 people are interested

GRCB is a non-profit organization with a mission to empower girls, women, and gender expansive youth and adults to believe in themselves by building a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through music education and performance. GRCB will be holding our week-long summer sessions and we are looking for volunteers! GRCB's Summer Sessions are week-long programs for girls and gender-expansive youths ages 8 to 17. Youth participants receive instrument instruction (guitar, bass, drums, vocals, or keyboards), form a band, and write an original song at a Boston-area music venue.

GRCB is looking for a passionate keys player to pass on their musical knowledge to a new musician! Our youth participants vary in age and skill level, including some who have never touched a musical instrument before. Previous teaching experience is not required. Instrument Instructors do some collaborative large-group teaching as well as small-group sessions (generally 3 to 5 youths per Instructor).

Before orientation, Instrument Instructors meet at least once with our Musical Curriculum Director and fellow Instrument Instructors to plan the curriculum and determine which style and level of experience each Instructor is comfortable teaching.

Requirements

*Ability to play one of the following instrument: Keys

* Must be able to develop a curriculum to meet participants at their skill levels and help them prepare for their band practices and the Showcase performance.

* Participate in mandatory meetings before the session begins with your Lead Instrument Instructor and fellow Instrument Instructors.

Mission Statement

Boston Raising Powerful Musicians (BRPM) empowers girls, women, and gender-expansive youths and adults to believe in themselves by building a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through music education and performance.

Description

Boston Raising Powerful Musicians (BRPM) works to eradicate all the limiting myths about music and gender by helping girls, women and gender expansive youth and adults to speak up, sing out, and make a lot of noise!

In a world that frequently minimizes these voices, BRPM believes in creating an enriching and supportive environment that celebrates our core values: Expression, Creativity, Collaboration, Inclusivity and Joy

BRPM is a volunteer-driven music education and mentorship organization that offers innovative and transformative programming to over 230 girls and youth with marginalized gender identities, ages 8 to 17, in the Boston area each year.

Our programming leverages hands-on music education and performance as vehicles to encourage confidence and collaboration while fostering creativity, self-expression, and social impact.

  • Youth Summer Sessions

  • BEATS, after-school program

  • Youth Activism Project

  • Adult Sessions

Each program is facilitated by women and gender-expansive adults who guide participants in instrument instruction, band formation, song composition, and performance. No musical experience is necessary to attend; BRPM provides all instruments and equipment.
