Distance Learning

Virtual Education

Welcome to Symphony Sounds!

The Meridian Symphony Association's commitment to creating and facilitating opportunities for arts education throughout the community remains stronger than ever through the challenges of COVID-19. 

We have mobilized our musicians and teaching artists to create Symphony Sounds, a virtual education initiative designed to impact students regardless of their educational programming this year. 

Every month, MSA will publish new educational videos featuring one of our orchestra members sharing information about their instrument and musical knowledge. Additionally, students will have the opportunity each month to participate in educational activities to stimulate artistic learning. Be on the lookout for exciting contests and updates through our newsletters and social media pages!

How Does The Trombone Work?

After watching the video, students can continue to learn about brass instruments by visiting the interactive game linked below.

All About The Timpani!
