Each week of quarantine in May, we had an Instagram "Theme of the Week" where students shared videos of them playing music that related to a certain quarantine theme. Themes included #SpringFeverRelieverWeek, #LetsGoStirCrazyWeek, #ComeTogetherWeek, #SongsWithoutWordsWeek, and #MyFavoriteThingsWeek. We had a lot of fun spreading a little joy through music, and getting a chance to perform finished pieces.
Follow us on Instagram and share your #QuarantineMusic videos!
We hope everyone is staying well during this time. Although we cannot see each other face-to-face due to COVID-19 awareness, lessons have been operating as usual, just in an online format and they have been going great so far!
Since the Governor extended school closures across Minnesota, Chaska Music Studios will be continuing the online lesson format until it is considered safe to be back at the studio. Please continue checking your email for new updates.
Congratulations to our March coin jar winner - VARSHINI! The total count was 137, and Varshini guessed closest with 135.
Also, we wish our March students a Happy Birthday this month!
Students with a passion for singing are invited to join our new student choir, "Youth in Harmony!"

Students don't have to have any prior singing experience to join, and can join at anytime. The choir currently rehearses on Tuesdays 7:30pm-8:30pm at Chaska Music Studios. Choir directed by Tori Sweeney.

For several summers, Chaska Music Studios students have made special appearances at the Children's Hospital, one of our favorite places to visit. This August, our student band performed at Star Studio for the Kid's Clubhouse in-house TV Show, a lighthearted, game-show style show for patients. We had fun hanging out with the Dude and participating in the games!
