Classical Guitar Education

Strumming to Beat of Different Music Program in Santa Fe
“Even if you don’t want to be a musician, music makes you more aware of your surroundings as a human being,” he said. “You develop more of a sensibility to the things that are going on around you. I have students in class who are having a hard time in their lives and when they start playing the guitar they forget about it — at least for that hour of class.”

-Robert Nott

Parent Education

Ms. Rochelle held a Parent Education Workshop prior to the 25th anniversary celebration in Sewickley! What a great opportunity for parents who are new to music education. When parents are involved in the musical study of their children, the joy of music can be shared by the whole family!

Folks who stayed after the workshop enjoyed a concert and free ice cream!

If you have any questions about future events like this, please talk to your teacher, or email Ms. Rochelle at ragnew@youngmusicians.org.
