Meet Mariana W, Our Featured Volunteer from San Jose!

Get to know our volunteers!

What Virtual Program do you volunteer with? I volunteer for the Adult-focused virtual program

How long have you been volunteering with Musicians On Call? I’ve been volunteering for about 20 months

Are you a volunteer guide or musician? Guide

What is your occupation outside of MOC? Program Manager

Do you have any hidden talents? Not sure if this is talent or not – I’ve been told that I have a great sense of direction, i.e. can figure out complicated public transportation fairly quickly. A quite handy skill to have when traveling to a new place 🙂

What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC? I was reintroduced to music learning through a Ukulele ensemble program in 2016 and I’ve been inspired to explore and get more involved in music ever since. The power of this tiny 4-string instrument can’t be underestimated! 🙂 As I looked for volunteering opportunities, I wanted to combine both interests and couldn’t be happier when I found MOC! Through my own music education journey, I’ve felt and seen how much joy it can bring – so if I can help in any way to deliver music’s healing power to others, I’m all for it.
