Education is integral to the DNA of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra.  For 65 years the LSO has engaged, educated and inspired thousands of diverse school-age students and adult learners by means of a comprehensive program of strategic education initiatives.

The LSO is committed to the precept that music changes lives. Proven historic research indicates music education/participation fosters learning using the multiple intelligences. Students involved in school music programs consistently demonstrate advanced achievement scores in numerous subjects including math, science and social studies.

The LSO is likewise committed to the precept that every individual is deserving of investment regardless of ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic background.  More than 12,300 learners are served annually through transformational education programs made possible by the generosity of LSO patrons and sponsors.
