Call for ISME Volunteers


We are looking for volunteers to assist in the delivery of the 32nd International Society for Music Education world conference in Glasgow from 24th- 29th July 2016. The conference is hosted by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and will take place over four venues including Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Theatre Royal and National Piping Centre as well as RCS Renfrew Street campus.

The conference will attract around 1,500 international musicians, educators and policy makers and will feature a dynamic mix of keynotes, papers, workshops, symposia and poster presentations.

Confirmed keynote speakers are Evelyn Glennie, Joan Armatrading, Randy Weston and Darren Henley.

A full music festival will run alongside conference activities featuring performers from across the globe and a further 1,500 participants.

Volunteers will be required to monitor sessions, helping us to run them smoothly and keep to time, fix minor technical issues, alert staff of any problems and provide general assistance to delegates as part of the ISME 2016 team.

In return, volunteers will have the opportunity to access sessions and other conference activities, spending approximately 50% of your working time sitting in on sessions. All effort will be made to ensure you are assigned to work in your own areas of personal interest.

You, and a guest, will also be invited to attend any festival performances you wish.

All necessary training will be provided.

We look forward to welcoming you for a week of stimulating discussion, innovative presentations and world class performance as part of the ISME 2016 Volunteer Team.

If you would like to register interest, or if you have any questions, please contact

Volunteer certificates can be provided on request.
