Music Admin Internship, South Africa
This international music internship is an opportunity to assist an energetic, passionate team help change people’s lives through music while making friends for life with South African students who come from a broad spectrum of cultures. This is a professional experience assisting with the operations of music, dance, and theatre productions at our music academy in White River, South Africa on the doorstep of renowned Kruger National Park, home to the Safari Big 5.
There is also an opportunity to assist with 2Enable, a software program developed by the music academy which focuses on three areas: 1. Member enrollment, management and communication and related event management. 2. Delivering free educational content to the public in general. 3. To assist Non Profit Organisations develop a diversified income stream thereby increasing their financial resilience and independence of big ticket donors.
You will work at least 20 structured hours per week with oversight from our Program Manager. This will include weekly formal check-ins to determine progress and get feedback from both ends.
As an intern, you will be a valuable asset to our music academy, which gives a platform for local children, especially from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, to develop an interest in music and the performance arts: an idea that impacts their lives positively. Since the inception of this project, there has been an incredibly positive change in the community. Young adults in Kabokweni and surrounding areas are starting to harness their talents and take charge of their futures. Musicians and band from our project have performed alongside international act Ali Campbell (UB40), as well as local bands Mango Groove, Watershed, Elvis Blue and Judith Sephuma to name a few. Young musicians at our performing arts centre also perform at corporate, private and public events, including several local festivals like the popular Innibos Laeveld Nationale Kunstefees. Recently, our performing arts students were invited to perform Ilizwi at the World Economic Forum in Cape Town at the BOE Nedbank Arena Waterfront.
