Outreach Through Music Education
Boston College Music Outreach Program
Music Outreach Program offers music majors/minors an opportunity to apply their skills and passion for music by teaching voice or instrumental lessons to children and teens in the Allston/Brighton inner-city schools. For most of these children/teens this may be the only opportunity to try an instrument !Music Outreach is also faculty mentored!
Commitment: 1-2 hours of teaching once a week, anytime from 2-5pm; transportation expenses are covered; all instruments are welcome!
