83

The Northwestern State University Music Academy will begin its third year Monday, Aug. 21.

The academy is under the direction of Northwestern State music faculty Dr. Christine Allen and Dr. Francis Yang and offers piano, guitar and percussion lessons for students of all ages in pre-K to adults.

NSU piano majors Robyn Tan, Ronald Rodriguez and Ramon Barralaga will teach piano. Orlando Enrique Gonzalez and Jake English will teach guitar and Juan Manuel Santos will teach percussion.

Last year, academy students performed in a Christmas concert and a spring recital. Students also participated in the National Federation of Music Clubs Festival, the Central Music Teachers’ Association Sonatina Festival, and CMTA’s Playathon which raised money in response to last year’s flooding.
