All the local nice melodies and beautiful sounds take place in the only public music school of Trujillo: Escuela Profesional de Educación Musical "Carlos Valderrama"- at INC (Instituto Nacional de Cultura)- next to the Cathedral. Since day one, they devoted themselves to train locals to become professional and/or certified musicians and teachers. However, this program is designed more to help out with the children and youngsters when it comes to their early preparation and basic musical studies in order to fulfil the expectations in the locally growing field of music.
As a state school, its tiny budget cannot afford lots of teachers for the kids and the youngsters at Symphonic Orchestras. It's really important to introduce both groups to the joy of music in a very unique way, as they need to be ready soon to take the next step in their concert-going experience. All the current staff on the school strive to build a pleasant environment for teamwork. With volunteers, they envision focusing on the process involved in rehearsing and communicating so students will acknowledge that any musical product is ruled by the accomplishment of their interaction.
The main goal of this project is to coach children and youngster with ethics, creativity, cultural keys, individuality and good knowledge of the main musical values for a successful career. If you have music running through your veins, come here to volunteer and sing along!
Roles/ Working Hours
