Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Philharmonic Orchestra presents 4 education concerts at the VETS in April and we have several ensembles who perform at schools and community centers throughout the year.

In September 2008, we opened the Carter Center for Music Education & Performance at 667 Waterman Avenue in East Providence, conveniently located of I-195 (Exit 8). This state-of-the-art facility has 31 private studios, an 18-station electronic keyboard lab, an early childhood, suzuki & music therapy wing; a jazz, rock & blues wing & 2 large recital-rehearsal halls. The Carter Center is the largest and newest dedicated community music school facility in New England. We also offer lessons at our East Greenwich Branch and at the Wheeler School in welcoming, well equipped environments.

The Music School has built valuable Community Partnerships with schools, neighborhood centers and local housing and social service agencies, making it possible to bring music education to people throughout the state.

We provide generous financial aid. We support the families of students under the age of 18 who cannot afford to fully finance music instruction.

We have a rich history of music education. The Youth Orchestra programs began in 1956. Lessons, chamber music and jazz/rock/blues programs began in 1986 under the auspices of the independent "Music School," which merged with the Philharmonic in 2000. We are a member of both the 230-school National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts and the League of American Orchestras.
