Community Music Institute
TIME FOR FALL KINDERMUSIK REGISTRATION
PRIVATE INSTRUMENTAL AND VOICE LESSONS START SEPTEMPER
Lessons taught through private instruction at the Community Music Institute (CMI) at Lebanon Valley College carry a long tradition of quality. Established more than 40 years ago by Ruth Engle Bender, a highly respected piano teacher and member of the College faculty, the Institute began by offering piano instruction to school-age children. Over time, the Institute’s services expanded. Today, private lessons are offered in piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, bass (acoustic and electric), clarinet, flute, saxophone, bassoon, oboe, French horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, euphonium, guitar, and percussion. Instruction for other instruments is available request. Additionally, a variety of ensembles are offered and a full curriculum of Kindermusik classes are held for students from newborn to seven years old.
Although some of the students in the Community Music Institute’s programs are college bound and are preparing for careers in music, most are studying for personal enjoyment and the desire to enrich their lives with music. All age and ability levels are welcome, from the very young violinist to the retiree who always wanted to play an instrument or sing. The student and the student’s goals are always in mind as the reach for excellence continues.
The Community Music Institute is a member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education. The Kindermusik division of CMI was recently recognized as a Maestro Kindermusik Program based on the quality and breadth of the program.

CMI String Ensembles for Students and Adults
CMI recently formed two string ensembles, one adult, one student, to promote ensemble playing for beginner to intermediate musicians without chair competition. Rehearsal times on Saturday morning will be announced. These performance groups are open to all CMI students and all community string instrumentalists. Our students represent many school districts and also come from home school settings. The goal of the ensembles is to teach orchestral technique, realize the joy of ensemble playing, and prepare a few pieces for performance. Emphasis is not on auditions and competitive seating. Mrs Dalinda Bohr is the director of the ensembles.
Fee: $105.00 per semester which includes tuition and music
