Online Education Resources

Welcome to the CMS Online Education Resources page designed to allow educators, students, and families to engage with the vast CMS archive of concerts and lectures.

Below you will find links to weekly themed playlists. For each work in that playlist, you will find assignments and activities developed in consultation with partnering schools, organized by four learning outcomes useful for varying grade and age ranges: understand, analyze, evaluate, create.

Check back with this page every day for a new work with suggestions for assignments and activities added to the playlists below.

The entire CMS archive, including concerts, Inside Chamber Music lectures, Meet the Music, and Master Class videos can be accessed below. In addition, there are links to further online resources to facilitate online engagement with these videos.

For Chinese-language speakers, please click here to access Inside Chamber Music and Master Class video materials available via our media partner, Tencent.


The Chamber Music Society’s education and outreach programs are made possible, in part, with support from the AE Family Foundation, Colburn Foundation, Consolidated Edison Company, The Jerome L. Greene Foundation, The Hearst Foundation, Inc., The Frank and Helen Hermann Foundation, Alice Ilchman Fund, the Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Fund, and the Tiger Baron Foundation. Public funds are provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
