Play On Philly is seeking enthusiastic interns for its Summer Program! From June through mid-August, POP will provide full-day music education programming to children in the Philadelphia region. POP serves students from marginalized communities who would not otherwise have access to such rigorous musical training. With a focus on ensemble-learning, POP offers all standard orchestral instruments including viola, violin, cello, bass, bassoon, clarinet, flute, oboe, French horn, trombone, trumpet, tuba, percussion and harp. Located at Temple’s Boyer College of Music, K-12 students participate in a combination of studio and large ensemble classes, as well as choir, music theory, and other arts and physical fitness activities throughout the day.

Interns will assist with teaching and administrative duties. They will shadow and support professional Teaching Artists in studios and ensembles and will have the opportunity to work with small groups independently. POP is seeking summer interns who are excited about working directly with young students both on and off their instruments. Summer interns spend a large portion of each program day directly in the classroom with students while they hone their craft on their instruments and also play an integral part in creating strong connections and authentic relationships with students during meals, transitions, recess, and other structured and unstructured parts of the day

If you have a background as a musician, an interest in education, and a passion for working with students and would love to get involved in an anti-racist music program, please apply to be an intern this summer!
