Spring has sprung in Towson this weekend, May 4-6th! The March winds blew in with a fantastic concert at the Recher Theatre. All Time Low bassist, Zack Merrick, a former Music Workshop student, even dropped by to check out the show!

There weren’t any April showers last weekend when our bands rocked the house at Zen West; a perfect day all around! The bands sounded great, the Tex-Mex food hit the spot and the crowd was in high spirits.

Now that the weather’s cooperating, it’s time to play outdoors. The Music Workshop will be sponsoring a free concert, Lafayette Gilchrist, Eric Kennedy & Friends, at this year’s Towson Town Festival, on the Urbanite Oasis Stage, from 2:15-3:15PM. The “friends” are The Music Workshop’s incredible Ian Trusheim on bass, the “Master of Funk” Fred Moss on guitar and our very own jazz prodigy, 15 yr. old Christopher Frick on keyboards, you WON’T want to miss this jazz powerhouse performance!

Check out The Music Workshop this weekend and enter our drawing for 12 FREE, private music lessons this summer (new students only). Our table will be by the Z104.3 Sound Stage, so stop by, enter and pick up a Music Workshop recycling bag (while supplies last).
