The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to strengthen and build community through shared experiences in music and performing arts education and performance.
We are mostly a community music school with a faculty of about 2 dozen teaching artists who give lots of lessons, and a small administrative staff. Our distinguishing feature is the emphasis we place on building community through music, and the impressive range of styles we can teach. We offer teaching ensembles for all ages and skill levels in a variety of music styles including roots, rock, jazz, and international music; our music groups help our students learn to play music together, and work toward a common goal, and express themselves as musicians. Embracing volunteers to help with our work is an important part of our community building effort, and we invite you to learn more about us.
