Designed for elementary school students in grades 3-6, the Westchester Philharmonic's education program utilizes music as a springboard to learning.
Working from the podium, the conductor will introduce the instrument families of strings, winds, brass, and percussion, musical elements of tempo and dynamics, melody and harmony; and key aspects of compositional form. Study guides as well as optional visits from professional teaching artists will help teachers weave the music and theme into classroom lessons.
