Learn About Our Programs

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, and an academic track.  We look forward to expanding our program in the future.

Classes and Ensembles

The OSU Youth Choirs provide young people from grades 4-8 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. 

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.

Music Fundamentals

We are excited to offer a new course in the Fall of 2020.  Music Fundamentals will teach our students about the workings of music.  Students will dive into a study of intervals, key areas, rhythmic training, and aural skills.  This class will meet weekly for 30 minute sessions.  Students will be given online curriculum and will be able to work at their own pace.  CMS will cover the cost of the applications that students will use during the duration of the course.
