Chamber Music Beginnings

Music comes to life in innovative educational programs for students grades 3-5!


Through entertaining concerts and interactive, online lessons, students learn music fundamentals (melody, rhythm, form, artistry, and expression) first-hand from our world-class musicians and teaching artists. Students discover the intimacy of chamber music and the values of cooperation, teamwork, and personal responsibility that are essential to a successful performance.

Unit 1 is offered online at no charge and includes:

• Engaging, asynchronous online video lesson series featuring Inspector Pulse@Home led by a CMS teaching artist

Units 2 and 3 are offered in-person and include:

• Live in-school performances presented by our world-class musicians and teaching artists
• In-class activities and instruction led by experienced teaching artists prior to the concert
• Access to teaching materials, recordings of the works to be heard in concert, and guided listening activities

Schools may enroll in one or more units, although enrollment in the entire series is encouraged!
