Update May 26, 2021
We are looking forward to getting back to normal this fall 2021. We are working in collaboration with schools to ensure we create a safe practice space as we move back into “in person” classes. Our plans include:
• safety masks for instrumentalists if mandated
• Limited class size to space students out
• Online options if schools have to temporarily close down due to Covid.
How to Register
Reserve a space for your child NOW by emailing us using our contact page on our website (click here)
and letting us know you are interested. In the comment area leave us some general info about your child (child’s name, school, grade, and instrument they are interested in) and/or use the comment section to ask any questions you may have and we will get back to you in a timely manner.
We will be officially registering students for fall classes in July. We will contact you with sign up details.

Our class schedules currently reflect this last school year 2020-2021. We will be updating in June and July to reflect this years Fall Schedule 2021-2022. If the current schedule at your school doesn’t work for you, you may join at another location or participate in any of our Online Classes that we offer in addition to our on campus classes. There is only one sign up period at the beginning of the year. You can find class schedules on our Registration page when you click on your school.
Are you a student not from any of the schools listed on our site?
Classes are also available to students outside the schools we have listed on our site. If you need help knowing where you might fit in, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can assist you. You can also browse the different schools for schedules and sort by region if you like.
Middle School Option
We have a middle school class options for students who graduated from their public elementary 4-5 and would still like to stay with M.U.S.E.
If your school is not quite ready for on campus music lessons in September, we will have temporary online options until they feel it is safe to come on to campus. Talk to your school if you are unclear of their status.
Instructional Support Library Online
As a registered student, we offer an online resource center of instructional interactive help videos and audio that supports students home practice. We have over 120 help videos online for the students to utilize as well as play along audio to enhance the students practice sessions at home. The play along audio background music is a fun way to learn.
Beginning Band Students
In order to give beginning band students a strong foundation from the beginning, we are going to continue to offer our “Jump Start” program at the beginning of the year. This 5-6 week program (September thru mid October) is offered on the weekends and is in addition to their regular weekly classes. There will be a variety of class times and days to choose from. These one hour classes are organized by instrument so that, for example, flute students will be in a class of only flutes so the teacher can focus in on that particular instrument. In our regular classes, the instruments are mixed.
We feel it is important to set goals for the students. We will be organizing concerts and other fun performance opportunities. We make these events fun and informal so students feel comfortable.
Students will also have the opportunity to do projects with their class, which will include the recording aspect of music. This is very exciting. The recording element allows us to reach out to an even broader audience. Imagine over the holidays sending out a video montage to relatives and friends of your child performing with their classmates dressed up in the colors of the season. Here is an example of a holiday piece one of our classes made this year:
We look forward to the fall and another great year of music making. There is a social aspect to being in band as well. Please feel free to refer any friends of your child to us if you like. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Teri at email@example.com or me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org
