“Ultimately, we want to make music part of people’s everyday lives,” says Jessica Shaw, NVMS Director of Opportunity. “Whether you prefer in-person or virtual lessons, group learning or individual instruction, NVMS has a place for you. Our goal is to have 100 new musicians sign up for lessons in the next program year and hope by offering diverse programming, we can bring even more music to Northwest Montana.”
