HAMMOND –Southeastern Louisiana University's Community Music School (CMS) recently added a voice and piano instructor for its Mandeville location.
Christine Cumming will teach at the university's St. Tammany Center, located at 21454 Koop Drive. Cumming, who holds a degree in music education from Centenary College of Louisiana, is trained in teaching "Kindemusik."
"We are excited to have Christine join our instructional roster," said Community Music School Director Jivka Jeleva. "She comes with vast experience in teaching music to children nationally and internationally, and the expertise she brings will be a great asset to the high quality of instruction for which our school is known."
Jeleva said the Community Music School has three semesters year round with fall and spring offering 13 weeks of private instruction on nearly all instruments and voice, and a summer semester consisting of seven weeks of private instruction and Middle School Band Camp. Three workshops in guitar performance and song arrangement, piano duet performance and chamber music for strings are also offered.
"The Community Music School has a 17-year tradition of providing the entire Northshore region with affordable, quality music instruction," Jeleva said.
