The Santa Barbara Symphony
Music Van Program

Our traveling “Music Van” typically visits every school in Santa Barbara County and gives students a hands-on experience with every instrument in the orchestra. Since we can’t visit schools in person yet, this video is available to any school and classroom free of charge. Interactive materials are also available.

  • Learn about each instrument that makes up a symphony orchestra
  • Watch how each instrument is played and hear how each instrument sounds
  • Get inspired to learn you favorite instrument!
