Welcome!


What does music mean to CHMS students?  
“When I feel lonely, music is my friend.  I love singing and hope to become better.”  
“It helps me do my homework and go to sleep at night.” 
“I’m taking Mariachi with my daughter and we’re having
a great time together!”
 

SUMMER MUSIC CLASSES are starting in August at our new location: the Mid-City Church of the Nazarene, 4101 University Ave!  Click on this link for schedule and online registration information: CHMS Music Classes in August.  Classes start on Saturday, August 5th!  In-person registration takes place on Saturday, July 29 from 9:30-11:00am and 1:00-3:00pm at the Church (above).

MUSIC EXPLORATION CLUBS are a great introduction to a variety of musical instruments for kids ages 8-12!  Violin, piano, guitar, ukulele, drums, and recorders are all on the list for this week of fun and friendship!  Taught by CHMS instructors Victoria Eicher, Mario Eguia, Shannon Yandall, and special guests, kids might walk away with a favorite instrument to enjoy for a lifetime!
