Downtown Sounds Music School Open House & Workshops

WHERE: Downtown Sounds 21 Pleasant St, Northampton, MA 01060
WHEN: Friday March 13 / 6:00-8:00

We'll have an informal Open House downstairs in our expanded Music School, during the next Arts Night Out (second Fridays) when we also host our regular Bluegrass Jam upstairs. You can see the new spaces, meet Dana (Music School director) and some of our teachers, and maybe even sign-up for your first lesson or workshop!

This Winter, we completed construction of 3 new private lesson rooms + 1 new group classroom! They're up and running. There's also finally a Music School Office between lesson Room #3 and #4. Nearly all lesson-related business is funneled through there and handled by Dana Wilde, Tuesday-Friday, with help from other workers as needed.

Room 10, the new group classroom -- which also serves as our second drum set lesson room -- is where we'll have our first workshops this month!
