Pop Music TIE tour 2020, Italy
21 to 35
Full Details of Job / Opportunity
We are a non-profit organization concerned with promoting student-centred learning through the application of theatre and drama practices.
Accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, EDUCO was one of the first organisations in Italy to utilise the power of theatre and drama within a didactic framework, and we have spent the last 11 years successfully teaching English to Italian children all across Italy, through our touring theatre-in-education company, TEATRINO.
We at Teatrino make it our mission to teach and promote spoken English to children in a fun and interactive way, through various areas of the performing arts, including acting, singing, dancing, music and also puppetry. All of our repertoire is in line with the Common European Framework (CEFR).
We are finalizing our cast for 2020 and are now selecting just one final singer and guitarist to join our captivating Pop Music and Culture tour across Italy from January-May 2020. 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. You are not required to play at a highly professional level but enough to accompany yourself whilst leading songs.
As you would be travelling around Italy with one other performer in a company car, drivers are required for this tour.
