UT Music Department Community Music Program offers beginner lessons in piano and guitar for adults and kids
The University of Toledo Department of Music will again offer classes in piano and guitar this January as part of its Community Music Program. The Community Music Program (CMP) 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 6 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 1 is the most basic level and is great for those who have never tried the instrument or who have not taken lessons for a long time. Level 2 is for students who completed Level 1 with the program or who have had at least a few lessons on the instrument.
The group instruction schedule is below. Classes for Session 1 begin the week of January 23 and run through the week of February 27, 2017. Session 2 will offer a similar round of classes beginning the week of March 20.
