Trainees must undertake in-depth training in order to become a tutor with the Drake Music Project NI. This incorporates training in a group setting (usually based at Westlink Studios, Belfast) and a period of work shadowing. Both of these steps must be completed before you will be assigned to a workshop, working alongside a more experienced tutor. We charge a small fee for our introductory training, which takes place in a 3 hr block per week for 3 weeks, and this may be refundable once you are placed as a tutor. Workshop shadowing is voluntary and the advanced training is complimentary.
Every year, Drake Music NI also holds 2-3 publicity/ fundraising events for which we require people to help marshall, move light equipment or hold a collecting can. Contact us for more info about joining our event team.
