Crowden: Where Music Changes Everything
Crowden welcomes music students of all ages and levels of ability to participate in our after-school, weekend, and summer music lessons and classes.
From group classes in music fundamentals, to private lessons, to advanced ensembles and composition workshops, Crowden teachers help their students to become the best musicians they can be.
Because chamber music is at the heart of a Crowden education, we believe in giving students the tools to develop and express their musical independence, along with the sensitivity to play as part of a team. Through chamber music, students become part of a musical tradition and experience that is larger than any individual.
Come be a part of it!
