Education & Outreach

The Community / Education & Outreach

The benefits of a music education extend far beyond the reach of the classroom.  Studies show that music education can have a positive effect not only on a child's academic performance, but also on his or her sense of community, self expression, and self esteem.

Contact Symphoria today to learn more about our kid-friendly performances, master classes and coaching, or how your students can play on stage at the Crouse-Hinds Theater!

Be sure to sign-up for our Email Newsletter to receive information about all of our events and activities for schools.
