GOOD GOOD NEWS!! Cafe Music School will continue in the Fall!

I am so happy to announce that Cafe Music School will be continuing in the Fall 2019!New (wonderful) owners will be coming in and taking over, and lessons will continue as always!

This means we are now taking registrations for Fall 2019! You can register right now to get first pick for September, you can come in to the school, email or do it online. In July and August you can register online!

I am so excited to see Cafe Music continue on!! Thank you!


Some sad news... Cafe Music School WILL be closing its doors for good end of July. Due to rising costs, personal reasons and just timing, I have decided now is the time to walk away.

I want to thank all the students over the last 10 years, all the wonderful staff, Riverwood Church and Eastview Community Church for the many recitals and the community for supporting this small business. It has been amazing!! Thank you!

We ARE open for lesson until end of June! We also will offer special trials for anyone wanting to try an instrument before the Summer.

Masterworks Programs and Calvin programs are in discussion to continue in the Fall so please look into those options. You can also talk to your teachers if you take lessons and find out their plans for the Fall.

Everything is for sale!! And I mean everything! So come and take a look at the list at the front desk, you can pay for whatever you are interested in, some items you can take immediately and some you can pick up last week of June when lessons are done! It includes new instruments, used instruments, furniture, decor, office supplies, a large desk and counter, coffee machines, kids instruments and more. 

Once again, thank you! 

Sincerely, Jennie Rempel
