2021 Winter Recitals
December 19th

Celebrating our 10th year as a nonprofit organization!

Play It Forward

Through our Play it Forward capital campaign, your donation will help AMS better serve our community as we secure the school's future at our new home.

Thanks to an angel investor, AMS has a long-term home in a great West Asheville neighborhood. This move is crucial, as the rent will be kept affordable, and we will have the chance to purchase in the future. We are planning to renovate to our specifications, including sound treatment, technology lab, and... parking! 

We are seeking foundation, corporate, and individual donor support to help us pay for upfit costs, as well as expanded programming.


Reminder: if you shop on Amazon, please go to and enter Asheville Music School Sound Education as your non-profit of choice. A portion of the sale goes to AMS! 

New AMS Merchandise

We have new shirts, hoodies, travel mugs, water bottles, and more available for purchase. Great for last minute gifts!
