Music Education and Events

From its inception, Music at Kohl Mansion has considered music education for children a central part of its mission. We offer music education events and programs throughout San Mateo County. Music-making engages the entire brain: students with experience in the arts score highest on tests of creativity, expression, and problem-solving. Establishing a vital and engaging relationship with music gives students a gift that will continue to enrich and delight them for life. Join us in supporting this mission by donating the gift of music education:
