Langley Community Music School is hosting its annual Fall Community Day Open House on Saturday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

People of all ages are invited to come and explore their love of music at Langley’s only non-profit music school while enjoying refreshments, tours, and sample lessons at no charge.

“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.”

The main feature of this particular event is the free sample music lessons.

Attendees of all ages will have the opportunity to receive instruction on a variety of instruments throughout the day.  In addition, for the three- to five-year-old age group, there will be a free sample children’s music (Orff) class at 10 a.m. And for parents interested in learning about the Suzuki method, there will be a free information session, also at 10 a.m., on this globally recognized learning method for young children.

Short tours will also be provided throughout the day. Visitors are encouraged to meet the teachers and learn what makes the Langley Community Music School so unique.

Information will be provided on all LCMS programs and classes. Guests are also invited to sign up to receive notifications of the school’s concerts and events, which feature stellar local, national and international artists throughout the year in the school’s 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. Choir, orchestra, popular music theory, and composition using software like Garage Band and Ableton are among our many musical enrichment programs.”

Langley Community Music School will be accepting registrations for the Fall semester during the open house event.  As space is limited in these programs, LCMS encourages people to register as soon as possible.

LCMS is located in City Park, at 4899 207 St. Call 604-534-2848 or visit langleymusic.com for more information.
