BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Concordia Conservatory will introduce its new music partnership with preschool families at The Chapel School in Bronxville on Tuesday, Jan. 10 and Friday, Jan. 13, TCS recently announced.
This partnership will give 3- and 4-year-olds at The Chapel School the opportunity to take "Great Beginnings Recorder" lessons with Clare Hoffman on Tuesdays, and "Guitar Launch" with Lee Metcalf on Fridays for eight weeks, starting the week of Monday, Jan 23, as part of TCS's Preschool After-School Enrichment Program.
There is also the potential for long-term benefits to the music programs within the partnership and the effects it will have on the community, according to a release from TCS.
"The Chapel School's music teachers, George Heath and Kate Marino, do a truly marvelous job," said Conservatory Director Kathleen Suss. "We cannot wait to work with them to bolster their programming from the bottom up, exposing the little ones to basic instrumental instruction and musical storytelling ... and eventually helping middle school students to develop a mastery level needed to engage in composition.
"The mission of Concordia Conservatory is to inspire, instruct and enrich lives through music in the community, and this partnership is a perfect match of two missions of neighboring educational institutions."
