Sunday Enrichment Classes

At PIOM, we are providing enrichment classes on the first and third Sunday of each month. These classes have various topics and provide students with the learning opportunity to broaden their musical expertise beyond their current private lessons. Through these classes, students will gain knowledge ranging from music history to musical genres, from instruments to theory, and even how to use open-source software to compose music! 

These classes are FREE for all PIOM families; $5 for visitors.
