If you have any sad, lonely fiddles hanging out in a dark closet, some child would love to be playing it! She will take any size and will pay up to $50 for them depending on the condition.

"The instructors are hoping to see a blend of new and familiar faces," said CR Music Professor Ed Macan. CR Associate Faculty Ruben Diaz will teach beginning and intermediate guitar students in a group setting. Class includes familiarization with fretboard, fundamental music notation, common chord progressions, and develop≠ment of finger independence. Intermediate students will also continue their development of guitar skills in both group and individual formats. Students continue to develop finger independence and chord construction abilities, and are introduced to reading notes from treble clef, improvising over common chord changes, and performance practices appropriate to specific musical styles.
