Crashendo, a free after-school music program for students who experience disadvantage in accessing quality arts programs, is seeking strings teachers for 2022. The roles include working with a mixed string ensemble from beginner to intermediate level.
We are looking for highly motivated music teachers with appropriate skills and experience who are looking for a way to give back to the community, and help nurture the next generation of diverse music makers.
Crashendo is based at Laverton P-12 College (91 Bladin St, Laverton) on Wednesday & Thursday afternoons 3.30-5.30pm.
Crashendo is based on the principles of El Sistema. El Sistema was founded by economist and musician Jose Antonio Abreu forty years ago in Venezuela, offering musical training for young people as a vehicle for positive social change. It has been shown to have a positive effect on participants, both socially and economically. Crashendo was established with the El Sistema principles at its core, to provide a music program for Victorian children, particularly those within communities experiencing disadvantage and disassociation. Crashendo particularly invites students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. 90% of our students were born overseas.
The program is free for students and instruments are available for them to hire free of charge.
