“Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them—a world of work, culture, intellectual activity and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.” — Gerald Ford, former President of the United States

OVERALL EDUCATION MISSION
A hallmark of Spokane Symphony Education Programs is to seek to bring audiences to a new relationship with music and the arts through programs that build on the work of educators, to engage teachers in preparing students for concert attendance, and to involve students in interactive presentations guided by best practices principles of instruction.
The Spokane Symphony seeks to engage new and/or underserved audiences where they live by presenting programs that stimulate enthusiasm for orchestral and instrumental music. The orchestra, ensembles and individuals will do this by giving concerts and interactive presentations of music that is familiar to a wide range of the community and that represent the diversity of cultures among us.
WHAT WE DO
The Spokane Symphony offers a wide variety of Education Programs for families and students of all ages. Each year, close to 24,000 students, teachers, and parents in the Inland Northwest are enriched by the musicians of the symphony. Our education programs are designed to help the schools meet the national and state learning standards and achieve positive results on the Washington State Classroom Based Performance Assessments.
