Violin class is a ‘go’
Area adults and students, interested in learning to play violin, met at Hedges Central last Tuesday evening in an informal meeting to discuss starting a beginning violin class.
Dennis Noon, conductor of the Wolfgang Orchestra stated, “I am excited with the interest and turnout for our informational meeting and the possibility of having six adults and five students (grades 5-12) in our first violin class. This could become a year-round program, with the interest expressed by the prospective violinists.”
Noon is organizing the 12 evening class meetings with beginning registration on Tuesday, February 26 at 5:30 at the first class meeting. Late registration will be the following week on Tuesday, March 5 for those who are interested in joining the class. Music reading and the fundamentals of violin playing will be geared for the serious beginner in an enjoyable class atmosphere. Cynthia Priem, Concertmaster and accomplished Violinist with the Wolfgang Orchestra, is the instructor for the Violin Class. Cynthia assured the people who attended the information session Feb 19 that no prior knowledge of music is expected.
Rebecca and Roger Wetzel, who sell stringed instruments, will be delivering violins for the first class meeting.
For more information, call Dennis Noon at 838-4481. Class begins promptly at 5:30 and ends at 6:30.
