State Community Music School App Launches New Fall Classes in Boone & Hudson
BOONE, NC – Appalachian State University Community Music School (CMS) will launch group music lessons at two locations this fall: the Broyhill Music Center on the App State campus and the HUB Station Arts Center in Hudson.

These programs, led by local teachers from Hudson and Boone, will be part of HUB Station’s performing arts suite.
Expansion is an opportunity for CMS to reach even more people with its mission to connect, create, engage and empower. CMS fosters a vibrant community where diversity is valued, everyone is included in musical creation, and programs are available regardless of ability to pay.
