Classroom Music Education Program

Education ProgramDesigned 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 conductor, Ted Sperling 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.

The Westchester Philharmonic's education program provides children with an opportunity to experience a professional symphony orchestra in a real concert hall.

The 2017 concert will take place on Tuesday, February 14 at 10:30 am at the Purchase College Performing Arts Center.
