THE MUSIC BOX: Music boxes were invented to make music small enough to fit in your pocket, just like this podcast. With a tap you’ll be carried 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 Help a child discover the joy of music by participating in 90.5 WUOL’s Instrumental Partners program. If you have a gently-used band or orchestra instrument that you are no longer using, donate it to the Instrumental Partners program. We’ll repair it and put it in the hands of a local student in need.

YOUNG ARTIST COMPETITION We give talented local music students the chance to shine on the radio! First place receives a cash prize and all winners perform in our live on-air YAC recital. Our pre-contest Open Studios also provide a supportive learning environment. Young musicians between the ages of 8 and 18 are invited to participate.

CLASSICAL CORNER Play, explore, and learn the world of classical music outdoors. Our activities span from visual arts, theater, dance, and musical games, with limited prizes being given away.
