Rhythm Discovery Center
Volunteering at Rhythm! Discovery Center and the Percussive Arts Society national headquarters is a great way to help others “find their rhythm.” Volunteers assist staff with enriching the visitor experience at the Center by providing valuable learning experiences to visitors. Musical ability or knowledge of percussion is not required to volunteer as there are many ways to make an impact.
The volunteer positions we offer are:
Gallery Facilitator: Walk through Rhythm! and interact with customers by providing information on collection pieces and assisting with instrument demonstrations and interactive stations. To further enhance the visitor experience in Rhythm!, volunteers are educated in the history of the collection.
Visitor Services: Volunteer duties at the front desk of Rhythm! include welcoming visitors, assisting with museum questions and upkeep, and other administrative office duties.
Tour Guide: Lead groups through an hour-long facilitated tour of the museum. Duties of the tour include presenting the collection, demonstrating instruments, and leading the group in an interactive drum circle. Tour Guides are provided with a script and itinerary for the tours. Training with Rhythm! staff is required prior to tour facilitation. Musical ability preferred.
Collections Assistant: Assist Museum Registrar and Curator with cataloging object and archival holdings. Tasks include working with the museum and library database, organizing objects and archival holdings on shelves, and accepting incoming donations. Learn more and apply to be a volunteer
