events

Momentum Music School is built on a community-centered

approach that includes many opportunities for students and their families to build relationships with each other and the art of music. 

From group classes and concerts to master classes, retreats and international studio tours, our students flourish both musically and personally when engaged on multiple levels. 

Concerts

The joy of sharing music with appreciative audiences is one of the greatest sources of motivation for musicians. We give recitals and concerts in many different venues and contexts. From a collaborative concert with visual artists, to a combined concert with 9 other studios and 150 violinists, to Bach in the Subway which is an international event bringing the music of Bach to public places around the world in celebration of the great composer’s birthday, students are given a vast array of performance opportunities.
