Summer String Academy - mentors
AYPO is seeking talented string musicians currently in grades 10-12 that are interested in being mentors for AYPO Summer String Academy. Mentors work throughout the week with eager young musicians in grades 3-6. During the String Academy, mentors participate in a side-by-side ensemble, provide one-on-one private music instruction, coach sectionals and assist with music literacy instruction. Other duties that may be required include set-up, logistical management and clean-up. At the conclusion of each day mentors will receive support and instruction in music education from the Academy Director, Laura Cahn. Mentors may volunteer to perform for the young musicians in a Mentor Showcase Recital.
AYPO Summer String Academy mentors meet daily from 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM, July 22 - 26, 2019 at Providence Presbyterian Church (9019 Little River Turnpike, Fairfax, VA 22031).
