Lessons are in full swing

October 8, 2014  |  FOPA Updates

Friends of the Performing Arts (FOPA) and the LPSD are very excited to offer the teaching of private music lessons in our schools again this year.

This is the second full year FOPA has been offered in our schools and nearly 150 students are already benefiting from this programming. This is close to 100 more students taking part than what was seen in the 2012-13 school year and around 30 more than the 118 who were involved in FOPA in the 2013-14 school year.

By offering FOPA’s private music programming in our schools, students who otherwise wouldn’t have access to lessons for financial reasons or opportunity are able to reap the benefits of music training. In the 30 minutes of concentrated instruction time, students are honing their reading, math, concentration, language, co-ordination and discipline skills.

FOPA’s presence also enhances other music programming in schools.

While most FOPA-sanctioned teachers are at capacity, Eva Miller has limited spots available for string and voice instruction.

FOPA is also very excited to announce that Ben Oswell has been brought on board to teach guitar and bass lessons and he is currently taking new students.
