Music & Dance Project to students students over 5300 is a good ideal for volunteers with an interest in the field of music or performing arts. This exciting project allows volunteers to get involved in various aspects of the music and dance.
Cameroon is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, and music and dance provide it with an unmistakable flavor. Whether you are on a gap year or a career break, volunteering to teach music and dance gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge with underprivileged students in the campus and through community outreach programs.
As a volunteer on the Music & Dance Project, you can choose any two of the following areas:
Teaching Dance (ballet and modern)
Helping with community outreach Programs
Please let us know which two options you choose when you apply.
Volunteers have the option to teach music to students, from ages 12 to 18. You will be able to teach them how to play a musical instrument, provide vocal training and also help them understand basic music theory.
In the future, the project aims to create a choir,community band or orchestra. Currently students are learning how to play the guitar, piano, violin, saxophone, and the clarinet. You have the option to focus on the instrument of your choice and you may teach them any aspect of music.
Singing is also popular among the students and many of them are part of a small choir. If you have experience in singing or choir-directing, your help will be greatly appreciated.
If dance is your preference, you have the opportunity to teach ballet or modern dance to local school children in Bamenda. You are expected to have a background in dance.
Community Outreach Program
Cameroon is home to a number of disadvantaged communities that lack resources and therefore the opportunity for locals to learn or grow in the field of music or dance. As a volunteer you have the chance to teach music or dance where it is needed. From township residents to local church members, you can make a difference.
