  • Office duties such as filing, typing, etc
  • Sending emails and press releases via Internet
  • Pick Up and Drop Off donated Musical Instruments

  • Solicitation of various items from businesses for our annual Silent Auction
  • Assist with Set Up and Tear Down of the Vintage Instrument Exhibit

Opportunities

Charity Music introduced the Musical Instrument Petting Zoo to our community in 2012, based on a similar programs in the Midwest. The Petting Zoo gives a chance to have an up-close look at over 100 musical instruments and actually play these instruments under the supervision of Music Mentor volunteers. Parents have repeatedly expressed delight after seeing their children try out instruments in our petting zoo, and many have advanced into music lessons.
