Volunteer Opportunities
If you would like to volunteer for us…here’s a few ideas!

For anyone: Support music education and want to make a big contribution? JOIN OUR Board, participate at any level of commitment you'd like.
  • Bring Snacks to Classes – Our kids would love a special treat, and with hunger with low income families being an issue, this would be a very special gift.
  • Help at events – BtG participates in several events during the year, we could always use help with moving equipment or just talking to people. Find instruments - if you have or know of someone that has an instrument to donate, let us know!
For Musicians:
  • Assist in a classroom – With multiple children being taught by one teacher, its always nice to have an extra person to work with kids one on one.
  • Teach a class – If you have a special song or lesson to teach, let us know!
