Carty House is looking for volunteers to provide music lessons (specifically piano and guitar) to its residents. Our clients are passionate about music and wish to learn the basics of playing an instrument. Volunteers are not required to have any previous instructing experience, although it is an asset. Our ideal volunteer has an interest in working with vulnerable populations, a love of music, and a desire to teach an instrument! Clients prefer in-person lessons and have access to a keyboard and acoustic guitar.

Volunteers will be required to obtain a Vulnerable Sector Check.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Experience the rewarding nature of working hands-on with refugee women! Our clients are eager to learn and to make new connections through a shared love of music.
