Do you have an instrument hiding in your closet you haven’t played in years? Debating whether or not you should just donate or sell it? KEEP IT! It’s time to dust it off and play it again. If you need a refresher course, boy are you in luck! The BSO&C is offering Adult Music Lessons for the guitar, cello, violin, and viola. Never played before but have always wanted to? These courses are for you too! You will be practicing with others just like you. That’s right! These are group lessons. You’ll never be alone. Our Billings Symphony Orchestra members will be teaching you their trade, Elizabeth Adcock on guitar, Mary McCullough on cello, Ali Levesque on violin and Sara Levesque on viola. Sign up today for this 10 week course. Music will be provided, instruments will not. Show us you’ve still got it or you found something you didn’t know you had!
You can sign up beginning June 1st.
All classes are $280 for 10 weeks and will be at the library. Fees include Lesson Books. This is non-refundable.
Instruments and music stands are NOT included. You must bring your own instrument or rent one from Eckroth Music, Kirk House of Music, Hansen Music, or borrow one from your kids, neighbor’s kids or grandchildren.
Music Stands can be purchased at any of the Music stores in Billings as well.
Music for Life also includes 2 tickets to Tango Nuevo on Saturday, October 14, 2017. You will also enjoy a Backstage Experience and a Post-Concert Reception. You will receive admissions to these events on the first day of class!
Deadline to sign up is Friday, September 15, 2017. The classes are presented in 3 ten-week continuous courses. The first begins on Monday, September 25, 2017, and ends Monday, December 4 (the library is closed for Columbus Day, Monday, October 9, 2017). The other class times will be announced at a further date. All classes are held at the Billings Public Library, beginning at 6 pm.
Please remember to bring your own instruments and music stand! We will provide the music!
