Education



Sinfonia Gulf Coast Youth Orchestra Programs
Sinfonia Youth Orchestra & Sinfonietta Strings



Mission: To foster the education, development and creativity of 
young musicians through orchestral ensemble performance.

The Sinfonia Youth Orchestra program is the premier training orchestra in  Northwest Florida and consists of more than sixty students who participate  in a variety of ensembles that perform throughout the school year.

The largest ensemble, the Sinfonia Youth Orchestra (SYO), consists of  the full complement of instruments from the orchestra with primary  membership being the older, more advanced students. The youth  strings or Sinfonietta Strings, focuses on developing beginning string  students to prepare them for the full orchestra. Additionally, students  engage in chamber music ensembles and participate in master classes given  by visiting guest artists and current principal musicians from Sinfonia Gulf Coast.

Music Director of the Sinfonia Youth Orchestras is Liz Aylor. Ms. Aylor holds a  Bachelor of Music Education degree from Heidelberg University and  Master of Arts Degree from Case Western Reserve University. Her efforts  have been featured in numerous string education publications and more recently  in “Florida Monthly” magazine. She is a member of the Association of String  Teachers of America (ASTA), is a Suzuki Association of the Americas accredited instructor and taught in the Okaloosa public schools for more than thirty-five years.

Paint the Music
Paint the Music is an interactive project where students in grades 3 – 8 throughout Okaloosa and Walton Counties listen to sound samples of classical music and visually interpret what they hear. They literally paint the music. Paint the Music aims to foster an appreciation for the visual arts and music while engaging students to express their creativity.
