Armstrong Community Music School remains committed to serving Austin by providing excellent music education opportunities to all. ACMS has been fortunate as an organization to maneuver most classes and lessons to an online format during the shelter in place period. This includes free programming provided at several locations serving many of Austin’s most underserved populations as part of our Harmony Initiative. As a nonprofit organization ACMS always welcomes and seeks financial support to stay on track with the costs associated with keeping these commitments. Your unrestricted contribution ensures that ACMS will continue to provide these opportunities while offering stability for faculty and staff. 



Join us for Enthousiasmos, a music appreciation series. Austin Artists, Arts Leaders, and ACMS Faculty will guide you through a series of musical adventures. Dive deep into one session or experience all four!


(Enthousiasmos is Greek, meaning to be inspired. We hope you find our programs inspiring!)
