An exciting new course for elementary age students is coming to Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in 2012.
The new program, “Clarinet Super Kids!,” is being offered by EMU’s preparatory music program for students in third-, fourth- or fifth-grade who show interest in joining their school band and playing a woodwind instrument. Students will use the Clarinéo, a new instrument designed specifically for this age group.
“The skills learned will prepare students for enjoyment and success on flute, clarinet or saxophone in their school band programs,” said Les Nicholas, instructor and Principal Clarinetist of the Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival.
Weekly classes are 50 minutes long and will meet 14 times during the spring semester. Tuition is $185 per semester.
Parents and students may look at the Preparatory Music website to learn more about this opportunity. www.emu.edu/music/musiclessons. Classes are scheduled for January.
