Armstrong Community Music School remains committed to serving Austin by providing excellent music education opportunities to all. ACMS has been fortunate as an organization to maneuver most classes and lessons to an online format during the shelter in place period. This includes free programming provided at several locations serving many of Austin’s most underserved populations as part of our Harmony Initiative. As a nonprofit organization ACMS always welcomes and seeks financial support to stay on track with the costs associated with keeping these commitments. Your unrestricted contribution ensures that ACMS will continue to provide these opportunities while offering stability for faculty and staff.

Get ahead of the game by spending a week with other musicians aiming for excellence! Practice improvisation and collaborative playing, work with local professional musicians, and brush up on your theory and performance skills. Limited space guarantees a high amount of personal attention. Guest artists will provide enriching experiences: everything from performance anxiety workshops to drum circles. Participants will participate in at least one masterclass and will perform in a showcase at the end of the week. Participants should bring 2 pieces that are almost completely learned.

No classes are currently scheduled.
