Luther College Community Music School
We are SO EXCITED to be re-opening the Luther College Community Music School after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic!
Thank you for your patience as we work to reinstate our private study program and add a couple of new offerings. The three areas of operation will be:
Weekly lessons will be offered for band/orchestra instruments, piano, guitar, ukulele, and drum set. (We do not offer voice lessons). Lessons will take place in the Jenson-Noble Music Building on the Luther College campus. Times will be arranged with assigned teachers. Students may choose to perform in a recital near the end of each semester. The fall semester recital will be held at 7:00 P.M. on Monday, November 14 in the Noble Recital Hall in the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music.
Service Learning Opportunities
The service learning component of the LCCMS allows Luther music education students to volunteer under the supervision of a faculty member. Community connections will include music classes at Sunflower Child Development Center, Modern Band (rock band) classes with Crossroads Academy students, musical experiences with homeschooled students in the area, and ukulele play-alongs at the Decorah Senior Center. These experiences are designed to be mutually beneficial for participants and future educators.
The first Community Event, Ukepalooza, will be held Thursday, October 13 at 6:30 PM in the Orchestra Room of the Jenson Noble Hall of Music. Send your student (ages 10 and up) or bring your whole family for a fun evening of group playing. Bring a uke if you have one or use one of ours!
The Young Person’s Concert is an event is created for preschool and young elementary students. We choose a picture book and bring it to life with music, complete with activities for audience participation, and followed by an instrument petting zoo experience. Mark your calendars for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, October 29!
The Luther College Community Music School exists to:
