Studies show that students who participate in music education programs have higher attendance, improved academic success, high school graduation rates and college aspirations. These results from strategic music education programs are music to our ears at a time where one in every four students in the United States fails to graduate high school.
New West Symphony works year round to bring music education into the lives of young people ages 5 - 14 in our communities. Our programs are designed to inspire passion for music through interactive live performances and music education programs that enrich the lives of our young audience members
For example, New West Symphony manages the following programs:
- Symphonic Adventures - Specially designed concert programs intended to engage and educate youth
- Traveling Music Van - Musical instruments and instructors travel to classrooms and provide a hands on experience to educate students about music
- VIP Family Club - Enriches the lives of children by providing a special experience of our concerts
- New West Symphony Harmony Project of Ventura County - Recently adopted by New West Symphony in West County, the award winning Harmony Project provides instruments and lessons to underserved children in the community with proven results in academic performance.
