ABOUT the ASYLUM for ART

For 25 years we have been bringing the highest quality education and performances. We now, in our new location at 2505 14 St SW, have the opportunity to step up our game. We opened our doors January 2020 and have assembled a great cast of teachers and performers to provide the best music in the city!

We will be reopening our doors for some classes this summer, following the restrictions that AHS has put into place and are setting some pretty high goals to have a full set of classes for the fall. These should be up on the site by the end of the week, so be sure to check back!

During the Day, there will be a preschool program offered by Suzanne de Bussac and Music for Young Children. Plus we are working to implement a Homeschool program to start in September.

Our performance space has been dialed in with food service and a liquor license. When we are able, we will be having shows every Friday and Saturday night and an open mic on Sundays. There is a beautiful grand piano and a great sounding PA in a great sounding room. If you can't make it down, stream it at www.AsylumKRP.com. We just upgraded our AV gear, so will be the best sounding online shows on the block.

We have set ourselves up to use our gear we have for streaming our show to offer a great place for you to do your online RCM exams. Check out his page for more info. Online RCM Exam Location

In addition to working on the studio, I have also put quite a lot of focus on my side project. Last fall, I decided to step up the Hot Sauce production and have been working on 4000 bottles of some of the best sauce to burn your f'n lips off. They are all ready to go! MURDERofBANJOS.com. There are also other great stuff there: Gluten Free Pierogi, Sauerkraut, Fermented vegetables, Salted Limes, and more...
