Music Education is for Life

The SMSO is proud to enhance existing Southwest Michigan school music programs and provide orchestral opportunities for those students who do not have a school music program.

Benefits of music education are numerous and long-lasting:

  • Students are inspired toward a lifelong involvement with music whether as professional performers, music educators, or members in their college and/or community music programs.
  • Students gain valuable technical and musical knowledge and learn about music as a profession.
  • Personal growth through the discipline of individual and group practice and participation in group activities with a common goal.
  • The understanding and appreciation of music creates informed music audiences for the future
