We are happy to have Anastasia “An Ya” Yarbrough join the AMS team! An Ya, as she’s known, teaches voice, viola, and violin. The Memphis native is emerging as an active contribution to the Western North Carolina jazz and R&B scene as one of the few improvising violists-singers. As for her teaching, An Ya says, “The repertoire we choose depends in large part on the student’s interests and their level. As a voice teacher, I specialize in jazz, R&B, gospel, and other styles of African American music. As a viola and violin teacher, I pull repertoire from virtually any style or genre.”

Music Explorations camp was so fun! Our young, future musicians learned about instruments from all over the world, various styles of music, different languages, and much more.
Summer is officially here, and that brings our summer music camps! Our first camp this year is Music Explorations, with Kylie Brown and Andy John. Music Explorations camp is a great way for young beginners to explore music, sound, rhythm, and various instruments in a fun and encouraging group setting. Students will be taking a journey around the world to discover the music of diverse cultures and regions.
It’s sure to be a hot summer, so come cool off with some ice cream and music! Our Suzuki Squad, led by strings teacher Holley Ross, will be performing at The Hop Ice Cream Cafe on Merrimon Ave. on Tues. June 12 at 6:30pm.
