Music Mentors

Music Mentor Program

Music Mentors Program sends our friendly professional musicians from the Greenville Symphony to assist Middle and High School Strings and Band Programs. Greenville County Music Teachers are invited to apply for a coaching visit(s) from the groups below. There is no cost to teachers. Our musicians will come to your rehearsal/class. The program is intended to help teachers prepare their ensembles for upcoming concerts, festivals, and competitions (SCMEA, SCBDA, etc.). The program can also help reinforce technique and musicianship skills at the individual level.

Musician groups:

  • Group A: Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Double Bass (String Quintet)
  • Group B: Flute, Oboe, Horn, Bassoon, Clarinet (Woodwind Quintet)
  • Group C: Trumpet, Trombone, Horn, Tuba (Brass Quartet)
  • Group D: Percussion (Timpani etc.)

How to Apply:

School selections are based on demonstrated need, ease of scheduling, and program potential. We wish we could serve every school in Greenville County every year. At the end of the school year participating schools will be required to fill out a quick survey and report back their festival ratings (SCMEA etc.).
