ORGANIZATION: MONTCLAIR EARLY MUSIC

image_20240531104849

We are looking for a volunteer who can help us expand our music education program. We believe all people should have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. We teach the recorder because it is inexpensive, easy to learn, and has a long history going back over a thousand years. We offer full scholarships to those in need. Our Youth program, Dragon Bards, combines elements of Dungeons & Dragons with the Suzuki Method of Music Instruction, learning music by ear. Children collaborate to escape from the dragons they encounter in their weekly quests. Their only weapons are the songs they learn. The position would entail creating partnerships with schools and after-school programs. We offer classes to seniors at local senior centers. Our adult group performs educational concerts for the community. All levels of musicianship are welcome. We are an all volunteer non-profit group with a passion for playing recorder music from the 14th to 17th centuries.

About MONTCLAIR EARLY MUSIC

Location:

153 Park Street, Montclair, NJ 07003, US

Mission Statement

We are musicians with a passion for Medieval and Renaissance music. We provide opportunities for people of all ages, races, and abilities to learn to play and perform music in small groups. We enrich our community with historic family-friendly programs of this rarely performed beautiful music integrating history, art, and music. Our mission extends to enhancing school programs by providing free and low-cost Recorder lessons to under-served children.

Description

We are primarily Recorder and String players with occasional addition of other period instruments and singers. Most people think the recorder is a toy for learning how to play "Hot Cross Buns", unaware that the recorder is an ancient instrument, in many sizes which match vocal ranges. There is so much music written for the recorders that it could hardly be played in a lifetime. We want to share the beauty of this music with others either to learn to play or to enjoy listening to. As an all volunteer organization, we are heavily dependent on volunteers to assist us in areas such as maintaining our music library, applying for grants, writing press releases, and editing videos.
