The Salvation Army is offering their School of Music and Arts. Officials said statistics have found learning to play music provides discipline, builds self-esteem, increases confidence and encourages leadership which all leads to children performing better in school.
For $50 a semester, The Salvation Army is providing professionally taught music and art instruction classes on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. beginning Aug. 20.
Instruction takes place over two semesters corresponding to the school year. Students take a major class depending on school grade and select two of four elective classes. The major class for Grades 3-5 is General Music Introduction and Recorder. The Grade 6-12 major class is Brass Band. Elective classes include Guitar, Percussion, Piano and Art. Art classes cover a wide range and variety of media.
