Teatrino, Educo's Theatre in Education programme, is made up of a team of professional individuals who specialise in various areas, but unite in their passion for theatre in education. We are looking for like-minded professionals to join us in Italy for our very exciting 2020 season. All of our Teatrino repertoire is in line with the Common European Framework (CEFR).
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.
The songs you’d be performing are already chosen and go with the particular workshop requested. 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 the guitar at a highly professional level but enough to accompany yourself whilst leading songs. Songs are often updated during the tour to keep up with the Top 40 Chart
You would be working independently, though touring with one other person, in a company car. Both tour members must be drivers for this tour.
