Students & Educators
The primary goal of Houston Symphony’s wide array of education programs is to inspire students to begin or continue playing an instrument. We recognize the extensive research that has proven that music education provides academic benefits, increases attendance rates and improves life and thinking skills for all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, preparing them for success in school, work and life.
In a typical year, the Houston Symphony serves more than 46,000 elementary, middle and high school students from 350 schools in more than 20 Texas school districts through a combination of programs, including low-cost or free student concerts in Jones Hall, musician classroom visits, and school residencies.
