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 (10th grade) and we’re having
a great time together!”

With a successful Spring Session premiere and an exciting Summer Session in progress, we are grateful to the Copley-Price YMCA for its partnership and support!  Visit Copley-Price YMCA to view all programs for youth, family, and community!

The News:

SEE WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT! – Director’s Note: We celebrated the end of Spring Session with a variety of informal recitals, combining different classes in a fun and casual atmosphere.  I recorded bits and pieces from each, see below.  Enjoy!  Join us!

This Little Light of Mine, BINGO!, Amazing Grace, and the Ant Song!

A DREAM COME TRUE! - For the first time, we offered summer music clubs for ages 5-12!  Following a particular theme each week, students received a basic introduction to piano and an immersion in a favorite instrument: violin or guitar.  Clubs meet from 9:30am-12pm, Tuesday through Friday.  Stay tuned for music clubs during holiday and school breaks!

MARIACHI!  Our Mariachi had a stellar performance in Rancho Bernardo on April 3rd, with additional bookings on April 30th (Fiesta Del Mar, Imperial Beach) and May 20th (YMCA Annual Golf Tournament, Coronado)!  View the videos and pictures on our Facebook page!  Play violin, trumpet, flute, or guitar?  Do you sing?  Join us!  11:30am to 1pm on Saturdays.  Our Mariachi program is offered in partnership with the Mariachi Scholarship Foundation and taught by Mario Eguía, an experienced Mariachi performer.

NEW! Video Library for Violins – play along with Ms. Victoria on Mariachi songs and Fiddle tunes!  A fun way to practice!
