MFY Internship programs
Eric Hirsh flute presentation at Bryant School
Music for Youth continues to look for ways to engage music students in educational settings. MFY Interns can spend their Senior Internship in the Bridgeport schools presenting programs and mentoring band and strings students in class. This opportunity gives the intern valuable performance and teaching experience while enriching the music programs in the schools. These internships are monitored and scheduled by Music for Youth.
The interns help manage the Free Young Persons’ Concerts and Friday Night Young Artist Café. As moderators and hosts of these series, students gain experience “running the show”. Selected High School students are invited to present their instruments at the pre-concert programs before the Young Persons’ Concerts. “Meet the cello, brass, and violin family workshops” were conducted during the 2016-2017 season.
Student ensembles and soloists are connected with performance opportunities and engagement as presenters in schools. Music for Youth was able to connect a number of ensembles with performance opportunities in the community.
To get involved in any of the Music for Youth Internship opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203-254-0123. We want to hear from you!
