Ranges Music Network is excited to be working with a talented and enthusiastic team of young music educators as Apprentices. We aim to support them as they grow as teachers and musicians and know they’ll bring great ideas, energy and inspiration to your young musicians!
Apprentices receive mentoring and support from our Program Director and staff of Educators. It’s part of our mission to create a diverse and sustainable music education and performance scene here in the Macedon Ranges.
