Vital Instruments Program

Not everyone starts out on the oboe or viola! In order to maintain balanced orchestras, interested students are strongly encouraged to try something new and pursue a Vital Instrument, including Viola, String Bass, Oboe, Bassoon, Horn, Percussion, Trombone, and Tuba. With the right fit into Marin Symphony Youth Programs, students may be eligible for a gratis year of tuition and year of private lessons on their Vital Instrument.
