“Who hears music,

feels his solitude

peopled at once.”

― Robert Browning

Studies have shown music education benefits cognitive abilities for all ages. Besides giving academics and test scores a boost, music study helps students become more resilient and empathetic. Exciting research has also shown music education’s promise for helping older adults combat age-related disabilities.

Music creation is the legacy of humanity alone. No other being generates the beautiful sound patterns and combinations that we do. So why do some people have access to music instruction and others do not?

Most often the answer to that question is money—and that’s sad. Intermezzo Academy of Music is dedicated to making music education available to all, and is making great effort to even out the cognitive playing field for all students. We envision a world where everyone has a right to music instruction, and we’re starting in your back yard—Broomfield and the surrounding north Denver suburbs.

That’s why we created Broomfield Youth Symphony in 2015. We believed in a local project that would make it possible for students who couldn’t travel to outlying areas, may not audition well, or may not be able to afford private lessons. From seven students we have grown to nearly 60, and we’re proud of them all!
