We are selecting two singer/ guitarists to lead our captivating Pop Music and Culture tour of Italy. A position on our Pop Music & Culture Tour involves leading Italian secondary school students (aged between 11 and 18) through interactive workshops based on pop music and culture. You would be working independently, though touring together, with a class of about 25 students at a time.
The songs you’d be performing are already chosen and go with the particular workshop requested. Songs are often updated during the tour to keep up with the Top 40 Chart. There are 3 different workshops offered depending on the students age. The workshops are 60 or 90 minutes long and you would usually do 2 or 3 a day in one or more schools, with around 25 students each time. You would not be teaching the students music or how to play an instrument. On that note, you don’t have to play at a professional level but enough to accompany yourself whilst leading songs.
Ideally you’d need to bring your own guitar but we could provide one if this isn’t possible. This also applies to personal laptops used for the presentations. Educo does supply all other technical equipment and can provide laptops if necessary.
As you’d be travelling around Italy with one other performer in a company car, drivers are required for this tour.
