What We’re About

The Music Crew supports the WWC music program, especially with its performances and concerts. You’ll help promote music program events on social media and around campus, organize student concerts and other music activities, and record performances for the music program’s YouTube page. You will also help tutor your peers in music theory and other music classes, and manage instrument lending for students in introductory instrument classes and individual lessons.

Through work that acknowledges and promotes DEI initiatives within music programming, celebrates diverse musical traditions, and supports students with various musical backgrounds and identities, you’ll help advance the music program’s ultimate goal to connect people—through music—to one another.

What You’ll Learn

You’ll spend years working alongside your peers with the mentorship of your supervisors. Part of the experience of work at Warren Wilson is guided critical reflection, which helps ensure that you achieve both your own educational goals as well as our Common Learning Outcomes. These intentional learning outcomes distinguish our Work Program, giving it focus and relevancy that set it apart from a federal work-study or your average part-time job.

Our Common Learning Outcomes:

  • Professionalism & Work Ethic: accountability, effective work habits, punctuality, dependability, time management, integrity, and commitment to the well-being of the community.
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving: working with available resources to creatively address issues and solve problems, and gaining confidence to make decisions.
  • Communication: the ability to convey and receive information effectively with intentionality, honesty, and confidence in both speech and writing.
  • Collaboration & Teamwork: actively collaborate with peers to achieve common goals, Distribute labor fairly, and hold each other accountable as committed members of a group.
  • Civic Identity: understanding your active influence within the community and how your decisions directly impact the work around you.

In addition to our Common Learning Outcomes, each crew in the Work Program identifies crew-specific goals for learning and performance. These are reviewed with you each semester. Your crew-specific learning goals outline skills and abilities your supervisor will teach you during the semester.

Some of our Music Crew learning goals include:

  • Managing social media and event promotion
  • Event coordination
  • Live audio mixing
  • Conceive new music programming to build community among the student body
  • Student tutoring and instruction in music (academic and applied)
