Teach Music to Children in New Zealand

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The Music project runs from Monday- Friday. Your working day will be around 4 to 5 hours of teaching and preparing for your lessons. Lessons generally last for 40 minutes and the school day runs from around 8:55 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The classroom sizes vary from ages 5 to 18 and with around 20 to 30 students in each class. Volunteers are involved in teaching a number of different instruments and groups including:
• Ukulele
• Instrumental group
• Choir
• Keyboards/Piano
• Instrumental
• Recorder
• Guitar

As an Assistant Music Teacher, you will have the chance to work with the children to assist them with their music and really give them the attention they need ensuring a great impact in their lives.

Work closely with the children in small groups as well as with the school choir as you teach music at a school in the largest city in New Zealand, Auckland. You'll work with children from all backgrounds, including Maori children and refugee children from underprivileged countries such as Somalia, Ethiopia and the South Pacific islands.


Reviews and Feedback:

“Each break time Daniel and I would take ukuleles out into the playground and ‘jam’ with the children. All in all I had a fantastic time working on my placement at Owairaka. The staff are amazing there and I felt immediately welcome.” Bethan Thomas

Thanks from a School Principal to Travellers' NZ Organiser:
"Hi Annette, Just a quick note so say how much the staff enjoyed having Jennie and Delyth and are still enjoying having Adria. They all fitted in really quickly and have been a tremendous help to us. As well as helping children read, assist in class and so on, we had a new child arrive who was very needy and Jennie and Delyth were able to work with him separately at different times while we were trying to organize support. This meant the teacher was assisted greatly and could concentrate more on the rest of the children. Just wanting to pass on all the school's thanks for the volunteers and hope there are many more to come. Kind regards, Diana Tregoweth"
