This summer the Blaine school district will be able to offer an exciting new music experience using a technology-assisted program.
Andy Harmening will lead the Blaine Keyboard Discovery class, making use of Yamahas Music In Education Keyboard Lab to offer classes in the study and creation of music. Class instruction in basic piano/keyboard skills, music listening and creativity skills will be available to students in the primary, elementary and middle schools.
Each session will run for 50 minutes a day, five days a week, for two weeks (a total of 10 classes) beginning June 18 and ending June 29. A second session will follow from July 2 to July 13, giving students a chance to enroll in either session or both, for more advanced study. The small classes, only six students per class will run both morning and afternoon depending on response. If adults are interested, an adult class may be formed.
The program costs $25, $20 for a second session or second child. Students in free and reduced lunch programs qualify for reduced fees.
The registration deadline for the classes is June 15. Call 332-8226 for Andy Harmening if you have any questions.
