  • MTAC PARTICIPANTS: Congratulations to our piano students Chase Wang, Corey Wang, Kenneth Lin, and their devoted teacher Anna Turkova, for their impressive placements in yesterday’s MTAC Adjudication Recital!

Corey Wang took 3rd place in the 13-14 year-old division with Chopin’s “Nocturne”, and Kenneth Lin placed 1st in the 15-17 year-old division with Brahms’ “Rhapsody”. Well done!
  • SUMMER PERFORMANCE details will be posted on Facebook, on our website, and on the display board outside our office. Mark your calendars for June 29th 7:00 pm “High School Musical Jr” and July 27th and 28th 7:00 pm Summer Theater Production.  All events in the Phoenix Center Bldg 700.
  • NO CLIMBING IN THE TREE please! Our beautiful tree is very tempting, but our students have gotten too brave and are venturing up too high and on limbs that are not strong enough to support their weight.  For the safety of our children and the health of our tree, please help us enforce this new rule!
  • HAVE YOU LIKED us on Facebook? Stay up to date with Music School events, and share our posts with your networks to help spread the word about the Music School! We also hope you might consider recommending us on your neighborhood groups like NEXT DOOR.  Personal recommendations and referrals are the most valuable advertising we can get!  Also, if you are willing to post or distribute flyers, we would appreciate the support!
