Music in Schools

Our musicians are visiting your schools this spring.

It’s Music-in-Schools season and our artists have been busy visiting schools all throughout the Peninsula, performing for students in assemblies and listening to school bands and orchestras in workshop settings. 

Thanks to generous donations from our community and support from the San Mateo County Arts Commision, we are able to offer these much-needed music education programs to grades k-12 at a growing number of San Mateo County schools. To learn more about how to bring one of our ensembles to your children’s school please contact our education and outreach coordinator here.

For Grades K-5:
Colorful Music of the World:
 A continuation of their signature Time Travel series, Sound Impact’s newest education program spans centuries and crosses borders, taking a deep dive into the colorful sights and sounds unique to each destination. A string trio combines live performance, storytelling, digital vignettes and interactive activities, in a 45-minute in-person or virtual assembly, taking students on a fun-filled adventure celebrating the palette of colors that enrich each culture. Time to travel! Up, up and away!

For Grades 6-12:
Music of Revolution Workshop: Sound Impact’s 45-minute Music of Revolution workshop, geared toward grades 6-12, is an interactive experience that incorporates digital content, music performance, discussion, and creative writing activities to explore music’s role in revolution and the power of our voices to build unity and understanding. Members of the Sound Impact team will visit your school in person or virtually to facilitate the workshop and engage with your students.

Sound Impact: Rebecca Jackson, violin; Tiffany Richardson, viola; Katie Youn, cello

Mainstage Artist Performances: Music at Kohl Mansion’s world-class mainstage concert series artists like the Alexander String Quartet (pictured above) would love to visit your school! These in-person visits can take whatever format you like – whether it’s a performance, Q&A, masterclass with your students – or any combination thereof.
