Aspiring Musicians

Whether you’re at the beginning of your music making journey or finding the path again after years away - you will find great joy (and some challenges) at every step.  The Houston Symphony is here as a resource to help you in your pursuit of music-making. 

 

Schools/Educators

We believe that our role in furthering education in Greater Houston is to inspire students to play an instrument during the upper-elementary grade levels. Through their musical pursuits, we believe that students will gain life-skills that will lead to tremendous success. At the Secondary-level, the Houston Symphony is focusing its resources towards instrumental music programs to provide motivation and role-modeling that encourages students to continue playing their instrument with the highest of goals in mind. Learn More

 

Community Members

The great flexibility of the Houston Symphony is that we need not sets, special floors or exacting exhibition space. Any place where there is room for a chair, a music stand and a person can become a potential performance space. We are able to bring great musical art anywhere.
