"Look Ma, I Can Read Notes!"
Sight-Reading for the Perpetual Beginner

Sunday, June 9, 2013
at the Resound NW studio (directions)

Instructor: Lori Lewis

Cost: $35 per student

Have you ever wondered what do all those musical dots and squiggles mean? 

Does looking at a page of sheet music seem strange and foreign?
