Dear Cascade School of Music Community,
As the new Director of the Cascade School of Music, I have been truly inspired by the talent of our students, the dedication of our excellent faculty and staff, and the deep community support for our school. After many years of being supported by Bend Parks and Recreation in our old building, it is time for us to make way for a needed city redevelopment and to have more space to meet the growing need for music education in Central Oregon.
Final classes at our current location end on Friday, December 21st, 2018. Our school will be closed during our winter break, December 24th, 2018 through January 4th, 2019. Beginning Saturday, January 5th, 2019, all classes will be held at our new home located at 510 NE 3rd Street, between Franklin and Emerson, across the street from Walgreens and next to Central Oregon Audiology & Hearing Aid Clinic. Our new parking lot has 25 spots, enters from Emerson and exits onto 3rd Street, and there is also street parking along Emerson.
Our current building has 10 teaching rooms, 2 administration rooms, one storage room, and no faculty or parents lounge. Our new home has 11 private lesson rooms, 4 classrooms, 3 administration rooms, 4 storage rooms, a kitchen, a faculty lounge, and a lounge for parents or students waiting for parents. This additional space has already allowed us to enroll new private study students, previously wait-listed, for the winter session, increase teaching opportunities for existing faculty, and bring on new faculty to teach additional instruments.
The Faculty, Staff and I invite you to join us at our new location for our official Open House Holiday Celebration on Thursday, December 20th, 2018, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
Thank you for your support!
Robert Lambeth, Executive Director
