Community music school throws open its doors

All ages are invited to explore their love for music at Langley Community Music School (LCMS) on Saturday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the annual Fall Community Day Open House.

The yearly event features the opportunity to experience music lessons through what the non-profit school calls “sample lessons”. These free mini-lessons are the main feature of the open house.

Visitors have a chance to receive instruction on a variety of instruments. Even little ones, ages three to five can experience a children’s music class at 10 a.m. along with the information session for parents about the Suzuki learning method.

“Our hope is that people will discover what a real gem the Langley Community Music School is,” said LCMS principal Susan Magnusson. 

“While we are recognized for high quality music lessons and programs for the beginner all the way up to the pre-professional, we are also an important cultural resource in the community, hosting multiple concerts and events throughout the year,” Magnusson said.

Tours will be offered throughout the event and visitors can meet teachers during their stay. Questions by visitors are welcome and information will be available on the programs and classes LCMS runs as well as the school’s concerts and events held in the Rose Gellert Hall.

“This open house is an excellent opportunity for the community to discover all that the Langley Community Music School has to offer,” said Magnusson. 

“The school does more than just private music lessons,” she said. “Choir, orchestra, popular music theory, and composition using software like Garage Band and Ableton are among our many musical enrichment programs.”

Space is limited for many of the fall semester classes so sign up will be available at the open house.
