BOONE—The Community Music School (CMS) at Appalachian State University will hold online registration for all lessons Monday, Aug. 3 through Thursday, Aug. 13. Late registration, Aug. 14-15, will incur a $50 late registration fee.
The Community Music School provides non-credit music instruction for youth and adults in the local community as well as surrounding Western North Carolina counties. Instructors include faculty and students from Appalachian and performing artists with teaching expertise who provide outstanding musical training.
Director of CMS Laura Chu Stokes said, “In addition to instruction in violin, viola, cello, flute, trumpet, piano (individual and group) and Suzuki or traditional guitar, we’re excited to share new offerings including clarinet and trombone lessons, general music for homeschoolers and world drumming.”
The Appalachian Youth Chorale, a community youth choir comprised of third through eighth grade students with unchanged voices, is also continuing after a successful inaugural year.
Dr. William Pelto, dean of Appalachian’s Hayes School of Music, added, “The Community Music School provides all students, regardless of age or expertise, with opportunities to explore the lifelong skill of making music and to carry forward the joy that is music to their families and community. Music continues to be a vital art form, especially here in the High Country, and the CMS ensures its future development through exploration by our community’s citizens.”
