The Crane School of Music is once again providing free instruction for home-school and private school students on woodwind, brass and percussion instruments this semester. Lessons begin on Feb. 7, and space is limited.

Children ages 9 to 15 can learn to play flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, percussion or other band instruments of their choice.

Crane undergraduate music students, under the supervision of Dr. Caron Collins, will provide weekly lessons for children as a part of their music education curriculum. Lessons are taught using a variety of engaging instructional approaches and musical styles, for students at beginning through intermediate musical levels.
