We have been working together all week to devise an online option for your lessons and music lab, and we’re excited to announce that it’s finally here!
Our reception staff has been overwhelmed with the task of managing changing schedules over the past week, and we’re asking you to help us relieve the burden this coming week by completing this survey regarding your schedule preferences.

Lessons at MTMS will continue as scheduled until further notice with sanitizing procedures between lessons.
If you plan to be absent or wish to temporarily miss lab sessions, please notify us so we can bank makeups for you. After the threat has passed, we will open extra times for makeup scheduling including daytime and weekend hours.
Stay tuned for further updates as we hear more from our government.
In order to support worldwide efforts to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the MTMS St. Patty’s Day Parties have been canceled. We encourage parents to record video of their children playing their performance pieces at home and sharing with us on social media.
MTMS will remain open for lessons until further notice. If plan to miss lessons or your recital performance, please notify reception by calling/texting 614-418-7110 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Rock band is a class that involves all different types of people who play all different types of instruments. I play the drums and sometimes sing, for a youth rock band called “Rocket Trash”.
The overall experience is really exciting, and even if you’re drained of energy, rock band will just overflow you with energy. Another fun thing about the rock band class is if you want to play other instruments, you can. Most times we can get pretty silly, but one thing leads to another and we’re back on track again.
So far there is Nick, Hasit, and Advait, who are all boys, and there is me, Lauren, and I’m the only girl, which can still be fun at times. Right now we are working on a song by Taylor Swift called “Ready For It” and “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor.
I have been in rock band for four years, and so far my overall experience is that I wouldn’t be the same without it. We have loads of fun here in rock band class, so why don’t you join us?
