Strike-A-Chord is a fun-filled project in which the Over-50's learn how to play the keyboard. We need a videographer to record our coaching sessions and help tell our story!

Isolation and loneliness are two of the fiercest challenges our ageing population face. Using the power of music, Strike-A-Chord enables the Over-50's and Over-60's overcome these challenges by teaching them how to play the keyboard. Additionally, this uplifting experience fosters togetherness and social interaction.

In order to help tell our story and powerful impact music has on our ageing population, the videographer will capture as many moments as possible on camera by video recording the sessions. A session has a duration of one hour and would typically have between 3 - 5 participants. We conduct Strike-A-Chord sessions in various locations across Birmingham. Thus, we don't have a fixed location.

You will not be expected to attend or provide coverage for all the sessions. However, we would expect that, whenever your schedule permits, you will avail yourself for this life-enriching project.

The fun that these precious Over-50's enjoy, may last a moment. However, the story you tell through your videos and camera lens will tell a story that will outlive us all. Moreover, you will be creating memories which the participants (and their families) will cherish for a lifetime!

Closing Date? We are in need of someone who can start right away! We had the maiden edition of Strike-A-Chord on July 13 2022 in Erdington and the demand for our sessions (in other parts of Birmingham) is already soaring.
