Student Achievements

At D/S Music Studios we encourage our students to pursue opportunities beyond those offered by their individual schools. We regularly prepare our students to audition for “all-star bands” such as the MMEA Junior & Senior District and All State Festivals, enrichment programs such as the Northshore Youth Symphony and the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, and summer music camps. We also work to prepare college-bound music majors for admission into music school.
