MCPS Music Donation Drive

Every year students are asked to bring certain items to supply their classroom teachers, but no one ever supplies the music teachers with what they truly need.  Instead they have to rely on funds they receive from MCPS, their school PTA, fundraising (not available at all grade levels), and the teacher’s own pockets.


We asked all of our MCPS Instrument Music Teachers to tell us what supplies they need and we came up with packages for our customers to purchase and donate to the schools.  L & L is happy to match all discounts for items included in donation packages. Donations start at $5.00 and will be collected thru December 31, 2018.

We hope to see you in our store this December to purchase one of these specially marked packages to support music education in Montgomery County Public Schools.  We will hand deliver all donations to the individual schools in January 2019.

We Are Hiring – Courier Delivery Driver/Sales Person

Our driver will deliver and pick up instruments from public and private schools in Montgomery County, MD and Arlington, VA as needed. We also do repair work for music stores in Falls Church, VA, Takoma Park, MD, and Washington, D.C. which requires up to 2 pick-ups/deliveries per week.

We are looking for someone with great communication skills. Must be available Monday thru Friday 10am-6pm. Music have a clean driving record (request for record may be required). Must pass MCPS’s mandatory criminal background check and fingerprinting, plus any other MCPS requirements for entry into the schools.

This is mostly a part-time position with an average of 20-30 hours per week. During the beginning and end of the school year, the hours can increase. Musicians preferred; since the driver will need to recognize instruments by their cases. No CDL license necessary.

This position will lead into repair sales with local school teachers as well as retail sales in the store.

Montgomery Philharmonic Orchestra presents Gustav Mahler: A Union of Symphony and Song
-Songs of a Wayfarer (1884-85) – featuring Matthew Woorman – baritone
-Symphony No. 1, “Titan” (1887-88)
When: Sunday, April 19, 2015 7:00pm
Where: Gaithersburg Presbyterian Church, 610 S. Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg, MD 20877

This fourth concert studies Gustav Mahler and the relationships among his works. Mahler changed the musical world and more specifically, he changed, forever, our perception of a symphony. Never again would a symphony have four movements. Never again would it be tonally centered, and never again would each movement use standard forms. Never again would using voices in a symphony merely be orchestra with chorus, and none of these symphony characteristics would ever return with composers who followed Mahler. He made the musical community sit up and listen.

Montgomery Philharmonic welcomes baritone Matthew Woorman to the stage to sing Songs of a Wayfarer, Mahler’s first work for voice and orchestra. Characteristics as well as melodic and harmonic content transferred from Songs of a Wayfarer to both Symphony No. 1 and Symphony No. 5 by Mahler. As we play Symphony No. 1, our audience will have the opportunity to compare and contrast Mahler’s compositional styles.
