Our docents have diverse backgrounds. Some are musicians or teachers, but many are not. The main requirement is an enthusiastic love of music. We provide the training necessary for docents to prepare classes of elementary-school students for the best experience possible when they attend a concert given by the San Diego Symphony or Classics 4 Kids. This photo shows Conductor Dana Zimbric (far right) about to begin a training session.

Docents choose which schools and grades they will visit from a list we provide. There is no minimum commitment, and visits are scheduled at times mutually convenient to docents and teachers.

If you are interested in bringing great music to San Diego students, join us at one of our training sessions to meet others who already do! Our 2020 training will be held at the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library (Community Room), 10301 Scripps Lake Drive, San Diego 92131. We'll meet from 9:30 to 11: 30 onThursday, January 16, Thursday, February 13 and Friday, April 24.
