Symphony in Your School

At the heart of Symphony in Your School (SIYS) students are creating, performing and responding to music with the musicians and staff of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Available to Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary schools, this free program is designed to enhance the school curriculum and help students develop an appreciation for orchestral music and live performance through exposure to the SLSO.


Symphony in Your School, Junior

Curriculum

Symphony in Your School, Junior is a free 6-week residency engaging early childhood students, ages 3-6, in orchestral music with their St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. With a unique emphasis on professional development, the program equips early childhood educators with the knowledge and tools to engage their students in music on a daily basis, allowing for sustainability after the residency is completed. The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra Education Team collaborates with teachers to plan and implement interactive and engaging lessons with an emphasis on creating and exploring music through the framework of current early childhood curricula including literacy skills, physical development, and social and emotional development. Lessons incorporate instruments and singing into the daily classroom routine, elements of movement and dance, and active listening through a variety of hands-on activities and play related songs and games. Students experience live music performed by world-class musicians in their own classroom and at an education concert in historic Powell Hall. Through the Symphony in Your School, Junior partnership, teachers and students discover and connect with orchestral music by creating, performing, and responding to music together.
