Partnerships for Music Education
Music programs are constantly in danger of being cut from shrinking school budgets even though they're proven to improve academics. Children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education. Finding more experiences that expose children to music education in a free and easy way is one way to ensure that students understand the importance of music in their lives.
LSO Discovery is the London Symphony Orchestra's community and music education program. The LSO is set apart from other international orchestras by the depth of its commitment to music education, reaching over 60,000 people each year. The award-winning program, now in its 24th year, enables the LSO to offer people of all ages, from babies to music students to adults, an opportunity to get involved in music-making, and to enter the extraordinary soundworld of the Orchestra.
