Britt Education & Engagement connects our community to as many diverse music education and listening experiences as possible. Throughout the calendar year, we provide opportunities to discover methods of self-expression through music in partnership with like-minded organizations, musicians, and teaching institutions. The positive effects of the study and playing of music on brain development, connectivity, and fine muscle coordination are well documented. Our programs provide the gateway to a lifetime of artistic contribution and enjoyment by future professional and amateur musicians.
Your generous support makes these programs possible. Please consider making a donation to Britt Education by clicking on the red “Support Education” link on this page. Peruse the descriptions of our Residencies, Children's Concert Series, Orchestral Fellowships, and Internships to see which programs you would like to support or participate in. Suggestions for new programs are always very welcome!

The band Quattrosound is one of many Britt Residency artists who have visited local schools to work with students in music and other performance-oriented classes. Here they are performing for the concert band and orchestra classes at Ashland High School. They also visited the choir class.
"I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your efforts in bringing students into the Ashland Music Department. Your dedication to education and matching great artists with the classroom is a true blessing to our school and our department. From having students ask which school they should look at for studying horn, to asking how getting a gig in Film Scores works – our students have been engaged, curious, and edified. Thank you for helping us and we hope this partnership grows and if we can do anything to help expand the program, please let us know! On behalf of the music department – thank you!!"
