The Music Guild of Music Worcester brings professional musicians and ensembles into the Worcester Public Schools each year, complementing existing music programs, and often serving as a younger child's introduction to orchestral and band instruments and the music associated with them outside of school settings. This program, Music-to-Go serves a specific elementary grade level each year, with cross-curricular components included so the students can relate their introduction to band and orchestra instruments to the sciences and math. Recent years have seen the Music-to-Go program focus on the third, fourth, and fifth grades of Worcester Public Schools.
The depth of the program varies each year depending on funding. A full funded year for Music-to-Go allows the program to reach across every elementary school in the Worcester Public Schools. In other years a rotation occurs across the City to ensure that the Music-to-Go program reaches students from all over the City.
