As the saying goes, two heads are better than one. When we decide to take up a new hobby or commit to learning something new, it’s not only more helpful to have a teammate by our side – it makes the experience more fun! Learning an instrument together is one solid way to become teammates with your child. Not only will you be a great mentor while they learn an exciting new instrument, but you’ll be able to explore what music has to offer together. This will be one of the greatest decisions you make as a parent, for your child and for yourself.
Asheville Music School will be hosting a virtual benefit for our partners at Mountain Care.
We are putting together a virtual performance livestreamed on our social media platforms to help raise money for a program that provides an essential service to the community.
July 17 Update:
Asheville Music School is continuing to closely follow updates from state officials on school reopening. The majority of our lessons are still online only, with a few in-person lessons happening throughout the week. We are adhering to Phase 2 regulations, where no more than 10 people are using our facility at the same time. Masks are required to enter the building, social distancing is required, and hand-sanitizing stations are available.
We’ve had a few Q&A sessions with our graduating seniors. Ella Judson is a student of Gabrielle Tee’s, and has been a member of our Sound Education outreach program for the past few years. Congrats Ella, and best of luck!
