What We Do

In-School Programs

In-School Programs

Our in school initiative is to create a lasting and connected network for area students and educators by partnering with schools.  These programs support the work of educators and help to bolster access to additional resources.  If you would like to see one of these programs at your school, contact us at

Group Strings Classes

Know a young person interested in starting to play a string instrument?  We have a program for you!  This before or after school program (depending on location) helps aspiring young musicians build a foundation of great technique that will support them long into the future.  Below is the list of participating schools.  Please contact DYAO at to get your student involved today.  Don't see your student's school on our list?  Reach out to us and we would be happy to partner with your school's administrative team.

Conductor in the Classroom

DYAO could be coming to your school!  In 2018, DYAO launched a new program that brought our artistic team to the community to work with middle and high school programs.  This program is designed to provide in classroom support to area educators in the form of a rehearsal and sectionals.  Our artistic team works with the educator to help supplement what students are learning in class.  In 2019, you will see DYAO partnering with Denver Public Schools at "Citywide".  If you would like a DYAO conductor to attend your student's school program, contact us at
