Teach music and instruments to your hosts and share what you love.

Whether you’re a violinist or a voice coach, you can put your musical skills to work while you travel, bringing enjoyment and happiness to the lives of our hosts.

Our hosts might be looking for structured lessons or they might be more interested in jamming with a fellow musician, it just depends on their skill level and what their goals are.

Many of our hosts are also interested in finding music teachers for their children who have the necessary skills and patience. Be sure to let your host know if you are comfortable teaching children or not.

Find the perfect opportunity to share your love of music with the world.

Hosts: Pick and choose your volunteers

As a Hovos host, you have the incredible opportunity to find someone to help you practice your music, without having to pay per lesson or session. All you need to do is look for volunteers who have a music background, invite them to come to your location, stay with you and help you with your music lessons. In exchange you provide accommodation and food.

If you want to practice your musical instrument, find someone who plays that instrument or who has training in it. If you want someone to practice with, find a traveller who sings or someone who has been part of a band. Expose yourself to different kinds of music, different music formats and various styles of music from the comfort of your home.

Wins from this experience

As a host you will learn to cooperate with and take care of your volunteer(s). You’ll be able to get more work done without any huge increases in costs. Furthermore, a host will learn more about the country, background, culture and lifestyle of their travelers – it’s a great experience and exchange.

What is the cost to sign up as a Host or Traveler?

Traveler Membership: $10/Year This gives them full access to all hosts as well as a FREE Travel SIM.
