Music Instruction with Acclaimed Musician Nick Hilliard

Has your child been begging you to play an instrument, but their track record has proven to be "fair weather"? Well, this introductory course may be the perfect opportunity. Xylophones and glockenspiels are aplenty and will provide your child a glimpse into the life of a serious musician. Who knows, you may have a Duke Ellington in the making. In addition to having a song or two that students can play on their own when this class ends, each week they will also learn about a different instrument that may tickle their fancy!

This class will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 - 1:45 pm for students who have completed Kindergarten through entering 3rd grade. This group will learn the glockenspiel. Parents should attend with the younger students to keep them engaged and focused.
