For the safety of our students and staff, the School has suspended all group classes during the COVID-19 pandemic.The CMS building will remain closed until the state-mandated COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, and the Director and the CMS Board of Directors determine that it is safe to resume in-person lessons. We encourage students to use this time to develop their skills in their chosen instrument by signing up for online private lessons.
