Welcome to Spring 16!Jivka Jeleva

Dear CMS students and parents,

Spring 2016 semester is in session, and we are excited to help our talented students reach their goals and dreams. During this semester, students of all ages will participate in private lessons on various instruments and voice. Our first annual CMS festival which took place on March 6, 2016 was a great success and an exciting opportunity for our students to showcase their achievments and to be awarded for their talent and dedication. We look forward to the end of the semester recitals scheduled in the beginning of May, 2016. Additional performance opportunities are also available.

Registration for the series of summer programs under the name "Summer Music Celebration" (link on the left) is already open and we look forward to celebrating our students' talent and creativity at the end of June 2016.

Please take a moment to read the “Policies” link as it contains important information on parking, lesson preparation, missed lessons, and recitals.
