Education Programs

THE MUSIC BOX  carries you into classrooms, across the city, and out into the field where we ask what is music and how do we make it. We’re taking classical music out of the box and giving you the inspiration and tools to compose your stories into music. The Music Box is complete with ready-to-use activities integrating core grade-level standards.

INSTRUMENTAL PARTNERS is a donation program that repairs instruments and puts them in the hands of local students. We’ve donated over 1,300 instruments in Jefferson County Public Schools and beyond. If you have a gently-used instrument that you are no longer using, donate it to the Instrumental Partners program to help change a child’s life for the better.

YOUNG ARTIST COMPETITION gives musicians between the ages of 8 and 18 a chance to shine on the radio in a musical contest critiqued by local professionals. 1st place, 2nd place, and the honorable mentions are invited to perform on WUOLive.


CLASSICAL CORNER is a popup activity area for families to play, explore, and learn the world of classical music. Our activities span from visual arts, theater, dance, and musical games, with limited prizes being given away.

#WUOLearning is a free resource of music lessons for families, classrooms, and curious minds! We visit schools, community centers, and other public spaces in the Louisville region to play, explore, and learn about music.
