Performing Arts

Aspiring musicians have much to celebrate this spring with new sessions of our performing arts courses.

The first class to chime in is Ring Your Bell for Beginners (12530), beginning Friday, April 5, 2024. Play in an ensemble while developing music reading and handbell skills.

Next we need all hands on deck -- er, on keyboard -- for Group Piano Lessons for Beginner & Intermediate Students (12531), meeting Monday afternoons starting April 8, 2024.

We won't string you along -- new sessions of the following instrumental instruction classes all begin on Wednesday, April 10, 2024:

  • Learn to Play the Guitar (12533)
  • Learn to Play the Ukulele for Beginners (12534)
  • Learn to Play the Cello (12532)
  • Learn to Play the Violin (12535)

Just in time for the return of the songbirds, fan favorite Jennifer Tibbetts is back at SAS after a brief hiatus for new evening installments of The Joy of Singing (12529). Learn vocal technique through songs from a range of vocal literature — from pop to Broadway to classical. Opportunities to perform solo will be offered in a master-class setting.

Register and start tuning now to stay on key all season long!
