Music Ministry

Music Lessons

Have you always wanted to learn to play the piano, guitar or violin? Improve your playing skills? Learn to improvise? Learn more about music theory (chords, scales, key signatures)? Learn how to lead the worship assembly from the keyboard? Consider music lessons. Beginner, intermediate and advanced students and adults are welcomed. There is no fee for lessons. Students will be responsible for purchasing instruction materials. However, no interested student will be excluded from lessons based on inability to pay for books. The only requirements are the desire to learn and commitment to daily practice!! Music students attend the following schools: Trinity, Ritenour District schools, Freedom School, Holy Spirit, home school. A number of families have immigrated from Central and South America. Some of the children have been adopted from Western Asia and South America. PAC music educators include piano teachers Sister Brenda and Nick Risko (Ritenour High School student); guitar teacher, Donald Wright (OLP Music Ministry). PAC after school arts program currently has a waiting list for art, piano, guitar, and violin. Please contact Sister Brenda if you or someone you know would like to serve as a volunteer after school or summer music or art teacher. Participation in the Archdiocese's Protecting All God's Children program is required for all volunteers working with children and youth.

 

 PAC After School Music Program students will perform in a recital on Friday, December 1 at 6:30pm in the parish hall. All parishioners are invited to attend.  The 25 students range in age from 6 to 16 years old. The program will feature piano, guitar, and violin students performing primarily Christmas music with a few non Christmas tunes as well.  The recital will last approximately one hour. Refreshments provided by PAC parents will follow the recital. Please come support the students, families, and music teachers of PAC, an outreach ministry of OLP.
