Our volunteers play a key part in helping us work with more than 2500 children in Stirling, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee. 

As a Big Noise volunteer, you'll be helping us transform children's lives through music. You don't need to have any musical experience, just a passion for making a difference to the lives of young people.

What kinds of things do Big Noise Volunteers do?

  • Help children stay focused during music lessons
  • Walk children from school to Big Noise
  • Help set up for rehearsals
  • Supervise children during snack times, breaks, time-out etc.  


Volunteers would be supporting Big Noise musicians in setting up and packing away the orchestra, socialising with and supervising children in the break times, and being present during music sessions. It would also be great to have volunteers who can offer additional activities for the children such as story telling or craft.  In return, you will receive excellent training, and the chance to experience this ground breaking project first hand.


What do we look for in our volunteers?

  • The desire to be involved in a programme which is positive, ambitious and worthwhile
  • Good disposition, heaps of energy, interest in learning something new
  • Passion and belief in the potential of children to amaze us and to achieve incredible things

We are looking for people who love being around children, who cope well under pressure, who are flexible, and who have a good sense of fun. No musical experience necessary...


When are volunteers required?

We are looking for people who can make a significant commitment in terms of time to the project. This could either be at least one afternoon a week throughout the school year, or most weekday mornings throughout the school holidays. Of course we would be delighted if you could offer more time than this, as regular participation will help build relationships with the children.


As this post involves working with young children, references will be taken up, and Protecting Vulnerable Group checks will be required for all applicants.
