The University of Toledo Department of Music again will offer classes in piano and guitar this January as part of its Community Music Program.
The Community Music Program offers group music lessons in beginning piano for students in first through sixth grade, as well as group guitar lessons for high school students, and piano and guitar classes for adults.
Each $60 lesson package includes six weeks of lessons. The price is the same regardless of age or instrument. Each lesson is once a week for one hour. Piano lessons are taught in the piano lab, with an instrument for each student. Guitars are not provided.
Level one is for those who have never tried the instrument or who have not taken lessons for a long time. Level two is for students who completed level one with the program or who have had at least a few lessons on the instrument.
Classes for session one will begin the week of Jan. 23 and run through the week of Feb. 27. Session two will offer a similar round of classes beginning the week of March 20.
