Virtuosi x Lexington

Advisor: Billings-White, Jessica – jbillingswhite@lexingtonma.org

Description: Virtuosi x Lexington is the Lexington chapter of Virtuosi Music Mentorship, a program that provides free, virtual music mentorship sessions for young musicians through high school/college volunteers. As of now, there are 50+ mentors covering 14 instruments, with over 150+ families participating from across 8 towns in Boston, 10 states, 18 cities and 5 countries. The program strengthens musicality of both the mentee and mentor as students are paired up with experienced and advanced high school musicians. Aside from lessons, we also hold virtual classes and recitals, and offer community service hours for mentors. But these hours are not the goal – we uphold our mission to share our stories as performers, give advice, and most importantly, guide and help younger musicians who wish to further their musical journeys during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond in every way possible.

Student Club Leader: Joy Gong

Day and Time of Virtual Meeting: Mondays, 3:30-4pm (may change – after assembling a preliminary group of mentors, I’ll do a survey to see what times work best for everyone) – let me know what your preferences are! There will be weekly or biweekly check-ins/drop-ins just to see how lessons are going for all mentors, but the bulk of the club will be individually mentoring students (apart from classes and recitals, which will be organized later after assessing interest levels).
