MCS News

If you were not aware, we are excited to announce that we have a new music teacher at Mat-Su Central School this year! Ruth Schwartz comes to us from the Anchorage School District with a warmth of spirit and a contagious passion for teaching music to kids of all ages. Her training includes general music, piano, and choir. As a professional cellist with an extensive background in teaching strings, her area of expertise is orchestral instruments - violin, viola, cello, and bass. She also loves coaching students of all ensembles (band, choir, and orchestra) as they prepare for auditions and performances. We are confident that she is going to be a phenomenal addition to the Mat-Su Central community.

Q4 Music classes are set to begin, and students are welcome to join any time. Follow the relevant link to access the Q4 Schedule and Course Descriptions, then Complete THIS SIGN-UP FORM for each student who wants to participate.

Some important things to keep in mind:

  • If you have multiple students, please complete a separate form for each individual student.
  • All classes are $50 per quarter, but some classes will be subject to additional supply costs.
  • Completing this form does not guarantee your student a place in a specific class. Mrs. Schwartz will contact you to confirm your student's enrollment as soon as possible.
