The Gilmore’s Education Programs provide music experiences that promote exploration and provide performance opportunities for kids, teens and adults.

Celebrating the joy of music making, and in particular the keyboard, is central to our mission. Programs that not only develop basic keyboard skills but also foster a lifelong appreciation of music make up the curricula for The Gilmore’s Education initiatives.

Education Programs

These year-round opportunities are made possible through partnerships and community collaborations.
