Eden Public School Third through Fifth Graders encouraged to sign up for free fiddle, guitar and banjo lessons.
EDEN — Third through fifth grade public school students in Eden have a chance to take free banjo, fiddle and guitar lessons provided by Piedmont Instrument Classes for Kids — a non-profit Piedmont Folk Legacies program.
P.I.C.K, an after-school music program currently taught online, is accepting applications from 3rd - 5th grade students enrolled in Eden’s public elementary schools.
An application form can be found at: https://forms.gle/UdYrFruR6YvoDTR28.
The application takes about five minutes to complete and is due by 5 p.m. on Sept. 10.
The amount of participants in the program is limited and guardians are encouraged to apply for students as soon as possible.
P.I.C.K. is 100% free, includes loaner instruments and also teaches the importance of our local musical heritage.
The Piedmont Folk Legacies program is made possible through a partnership with the Rockingham County Education Foundation and is achievable thanks to financial support of the Reidsville Area Foundation, Home Trust Bank, Sheetz, and private donations.
Founded in 2019, P.I.C.K. aims its focus at fostering the next generation of Piedmont musicians in an effort to build on Rockingham County's strong musical heritage and culture.
The P.I.C.K team, through instruction and encouragement, uses traditional music to positively impact the lives of the children of Rockingham County.
Their goal is to enhance learning experiences that continue rich cultural traditions for generations to come.
