Powers Music School
The Powers Music School is a regional, not-for-profit institution established in 1964 to provide superior musical instruction and performance opportunities to all interested students from 18 months to adults. The core founding principles, that all students are entitled to high quality musical instruction and that music is an essential part of our lives, continue to guide the School today. Instruction includes: private lessons in voice and most instruments; a variety of childhood music programs; Suzuki violin, cello, and guitar; music therapy; jazz and chamber music ensembles; early music consorts and opera programs for both children and adults. The School sponsors a wide range of community outreach events, including chamber music and piano festivals, faculty concerts, an interactive opera concert program for young students, and a community "Open Sings" program. Summer programs include: Music on the Hill (a 4-week chamber music program for students ages 9 –17) and Pow-Wow (a 2-week program for ages 5 – 9). The School currently serves over 1,000 students who travel from 50+ surrounding communities. Powers Music School is a certified full member of the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts and strives to make its programs available to all interested parties, regardless of age, sex, race, nationality, ethnic origin, physical challenges or ability to pay.
