Volunteer Musician at Seacrest Studios
MOC's Virtual Program at Seacrest Studios is a 30-45 minute performance that is broadcast live from the hospital's studio to patient rooms. While most patients watch from their beds, some children who are healthy enough may come down to watch in the studio. Musicians will play 8-10 hospital and kid-friendly songs. Patients can call-in to ask questions and interact with the musician in between songs. Each virtual program is led by the on-site Seacrest Studio Manager.
MOC's orientation process includes the following:
- application with music sample
- phone interview
- handbook, orientation, and quiz
- background check & confidentiality agreement
Volunteer Musicians must also shadow at least one virtual program before they perform for their first show at Seacrest Studios. After completion of training, volunteers commit to volunteering once a month for at least one year.
We offer programs on weekdays (during the day).
Please note: your music sample should be a good reflection of the type of music you would play in this setting. Please remember to have kid-friendly music!
