Music and culture enrich kids’ lives.

Student Strings

Geared toward middle school and high school music classes, our Student Strings program builds music literacy and confidence through in-class workshop intensives, discussions, and live performances.

Elementary & Secondary School Programs.

Our Schools & Kids programs focus on making the arts and creativity integral to the educational process. We work with thousands of school children each year, many from underserved schools, and help them open their eyes, ears, and minds through exposure to music and culture.

We currently offer two programs: Chinese Arts & Culture and The Renaissance and The Middle Ages. Led by a team of teaching artists and musicians, these curriculum-based programs make full use of Caramoor, offering students and teachers opportunities to interact with our gardens, grounds, greenhouse, performance spaces, and historic Rosen House. Read through the program descriptions for a sense of what a field trip to Caramoor looks like for a class of young learners!

Student Tickets

We understand that schools have limited resources but strong desires to expose children to music and culture. To support that goal, we offer half-price tickets to select performances during the year for students and their families.
