The CSO Sound Discoveries school residency program brings weekly music instruction into schools in need of increased arts access. Piloted in the 2016-2017 season, this program is currently provided to Hays-Porter School in the West End at no cost.
Every week, 26 third and fourth graders participate in class led by CSO Teaching Artist Liz Wu where they learn music fundamentals while discovering how music can integrate with other areas of learning, such as math and technology. The learning objectives of the Sound Discoveries program are developed to directly support the student and school’s unique individual needs. In the pilot season, teachers expressed seeing improvement in attentiveness, patience, curiosity and excitement to learn.
