Conservatory Connections


Does your school, church, early childhood center, public library, senior center, or community organization have a need for quality music education programs? The Wisconsin Conservatory of Music is uniquely positioned to meet your organization’s music education needs.

Conservatory Connections programs inspire, energize, and generate lifelong learners through curriculum-based music instruction. Innovative programs are designed in collaboration with each partner and instructors are carefully matched to fit your specific need.

Connections-MusicCounts-1150x400Music Counts provides a creative, engaging, curriculum-based general music education. Developed by our team of music specialists to address national and state standards, Music Counts aims to give every child a lifelong love of music.

This hands-on, performance-based approach addresses six main areas: singing, playing instruments, reading and notating music, creativity and composition, listening and responding, and connection to culture and other art forms.

Music Counts is available to public, private, charter, and choice schools as a fully integrated school music program or as a supplement to existing programs.

Students learn violin, viola, and cello using the Suzuki Method.  The method treats music education in the same way that people learn to speak their native language; through listening, imitation, and repetition in a positive, nurturing learning environment with active parental participation.

All students will develop a solid technical foundation, tone, and musicianship skills with our highly trained Suzuki teachers.
