Welcome to Fall 2020!

CMS hopes that you and your families are healthy and doing all right during these extraordinary times.

Although disappointed not to be offering any ensemble programming or in person group classes in fall 2020, we do have some ways to make music with us.

The University of Delaware Community Music School (UDCMS) is the outreach program of the University of Delaware School of Music. For over 20 years the ​UDCMS has provided a wide variety of music instruction options for more than 500 students a year. Our current programs include private study instruction with a wide range of instructors from students in the School of Music to professional performers with extensive experience.  In addition, we have a vibrant Suzuki program and three youth choirs ranging from first grade through high school.  Children under 6 are happy participants and eager learners in our Music for Young Minds classes.  We also offer many summer camps and specialized workshops.



Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather, if the University of Delaware closes, all UDCMS classes and lessons are canceled. Private study students will be contacted by their individual instructors. Group classes will be contacted by their ensemble director via email.
