About Us

The Oklahoma State University Community Music School is an extension of the Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music and is based in Stillwater, OK.  Formed in 2017, the Community Music School has over 100 students and offers programs for students as young as 4.  We offer a nurturing environment and believe that every child can learn to sing or play a musical instrument. Program offerings currently include Youth Choirs, a Youth Orchestra, and a Suzuki Strings Program.  We look forward to expanding our program in the future.

Learn About Our Programs

Classes and Ensembles

The OSU Youth Choirs provide young people from grades 4-12 the opportunity to sing quality choral music representing a variety of styles, eras, and cultures. Singers will expand their vocal development, enhance their musicianship skills, and experience a variety of traditional and contemporary repertoire appropriate for their age and vocal maturity. The two choirs will divided by age: one for grades 4-8, and one for grades 9-12.

Youth Orchestra

The OSU Youth Orchestra (OSUYO) is a full symphony consisting of mostly high school students in strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion sections. Repertoire includes many standard masterworks expertly arranged for educational ensembles, as well as original compositions and contemporary works. The OSUYO is conducted by OSU faculty member Dr. Thomas Taylor Dickey.  

Suzuki Strings

The Suzuki method embraces a nurturing environment in which the students, teachers, and parents all work together. Just as your child learned to speak through through listening, imitation, and repetition, all children have the ability to learn the musical language in the same way.  Our comprehensive program combines private lessons and group lessons. Parents attend lessons and group classes so they can serve as the home teacher during the week.
