Conservatory Outreach

 

The New Horizons Music program was started at the Eastman School of Music in 1991 and now has more than 100 programs in the United States and Canada.  BW's New Horizons Program offers adults the opportunity to learn to play an instrument (strings, woodwind, brass or percussion).  This is perfect for adults who have never had the opportunity to play an instrument or for those who played during their school days but have not had the opportunity since.  We offer bands (beginning, intermediate and advanced levels), jazz band, string orchestras (beginning, intermediate and advanced levels), and chamber music ensembles. 

No experience is necessary (we will even teach you how to read music) and our program includes adults of all ages!

Each class, ensemble and band performs in a concert at the end of each semester at the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory.  The program is under the direction of Laura Joss, Chair of Music Education at BW.
