JOHNSON CITY – The Department of Music at East Tennessee State University has launched a new Community Music School, a program that provides high-level music training to students of all ages and skill levels in the Appalachian Highlands.
“Our talented faculty are thrilled to offer this instruction,” said Dr. Roya Farzaneh, named artistic director of the program. “We can help beginner students lay an excellent foundation as well as offer advanced students challenges that will take their music abilities to the next level.”
The Community Music School offers a range of classes and events. There are comprehensive music lessons that feature faculty providing private lessons for all instruments and voice. Pre-college programs deliver a music education experience for those prepping for college-level music studies or those who want to hone their skills.
Adult programs include a supportive environment to grow, as do the youth programs targeted at children starting their musical journey.
The school also organizes concerts and events throughout the year.
ETSU is home to a vibrant arts community, hosting dozens of concerts, exhibitions and performances throughout the year.
“We believe that music is a powerful force that brings people together, fosters creativity and enhances personal growth,” said Dr. Alan Stevens, chair of the Department of Music. “Whether you or your children have a lifelong passion for music or are simply looking to explore a new hobby, our programs are designed to inspire, nurture and celebrate your musical journey.”
Registration for the fall is now open. The deadline is Aug. 20.
