School Instructional Residencies

The WSO partners with individual schools to provide intensive instructional residencies aimed at improving students' musical skills and inspiring them to push their boundaries.  Requiring the absolute endorsement of the school administration and artistic staff, this is an opportunity for the WSO to help develop the musicians and audience members of the future.

 

Goals:

  • • Establish pilot programs and develop existing programs to identify best practices.
  • • Provide middle and high school children with expert instruction, performance opportunities, and motivation to exceed their boundaries.
  • • Provide opportunities for students to extend their studies beyond their school program and into the WSO’s concert experience.
