Performance Opportunities and Classes
In addition to private one-on-one music lessons, CSM has both a Spring Recital and Fall Recital Season to offer every student two live performance opportunities per year with a large stage, microphones, lights, an amazing grand piano and professional accompanists to enrich each student and our community. Your families and friends are welcome to attend and we also stream this on our CSM Facebook channel so that out of state family members, friends, aunts, uncles, grandparents and all can join in with us!!!
We also offer music labs for jazz, and ensembles for strings and winds and voice. This past year we had masterclasses in piano duetting, church organ performance masterclass, composition and recording classes, theory labs and much much more. Click this link at: Group Class Page to see upcoming class offerings and please talk to your CSM private instructor to learn more.
We hold a "Friday Open Mic" which is a performance opportunity for anyone in CSM to come test out a piece or composition and perform it in a small safe space in front of an audience. Additional performance opportunities have included "Christmas Music" gatherings at retirement communities, Leesburg First Friday Performances, busking in downtown Leesburg, Rock Band and Worship Camps and more.

An ensemble is a group of musicians of the same or different instruments collaborating on a long term basis. Some examples of ensembles at CSM are string trios and quartets, flute trios, and guitar ensemble. Ensemble placement is based on teacher recommendation only and is only open to CSM students.
Our ensembles perform everywhere for many events including First Fridays in Downtown Leesburg, Christmas Services at Leesburg Community Church, Oatlands Plantation, Spring Arbor Assisted Living Community, Virginia Village, Leesburg Farmer's Market and more. If you are interested in joining or forming an ensemble, speak with your CSM teacher directly. Ensemble participation is free.

Music Together Program
For hundreds of thousands of families worldwide, Music Together is children and their grownups joyfully sharing songs, rhymes, movement, and instrument play, both in music class and in their daily lives. A pioneer in early childhood music and movement education, Music Together offers classes for children from birth through kindergarten, in which parents and caregivers are encouraged to actively participate.
All children are sounders and movers, and their natural aptitude for music blossoms in a sufficiently rich music environment. In fact, when given a supportive music environment, children learn to sing and dance as naturally as they learn to walk and talk.
How is this possible? Children learn differently than adults. They learn instinctively and constantly. They teach themselves through imitation and play, through being immersed in their environment, and through every interaction with adults and older children. The family-like setting of Music Together's mixed-age classes enables siblings to attend together, creating an ideal learning environment where infants, toddlers, and preschoolers can freely participate at their own levels.
