Courses

Welcome!

There is something for everyone at the Richmond Symphony School of Music! In addition to our Youth Orchestra Program, offerings range from pre-college music theory and composition, to adult courses for all abilities and interests, like a fun “off-key” version of music history with Treesa Ruins Classical Music, or lessons in listening with For Your Ears Only.

Whether you are a new or returning student, we are excited to have you as part of the RSSoM community. Thanks for joining us - see you in class!
