Programs that TEACH the foundations of music and allow children to express themselves creatively

Music Discovery Program 
Ravinia offers music education programs to over 5,500 K–3rd grade children in under-resourced Chicago Public Schools. This program enhances students’ musical skills by providing resident teaching artists for multi-week, interactive music lessons in the classroom. The joy and excitement of the music discovered through the residency comes to life as students perform on-stage at Ravinia for their friends, teachers and families.

Professional Development
- Ravinia presents a three-day Professional Development Institute in August for CPS elementary teachers, as well as follow-up workshops in the Fall and Winter. The training gives classroom teachers the skills and resources to enhance their curriculum with music.
