Parental Resources

Nothing is more thrilling than nurturing the musical talents in young people. Not only is music education beneficial to children's self esteem, studies have proven that students who study music improved their performance on math examinations, and consistently score better on tests than students who do not study music.

While Opera Philadelphia does not offer musical training, there are a variety of excellent local organizations that can provide your child with an outstanding musical education. Below is a list of resources in the area that can initiate your child's discovery of music.
