     HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University’s Community Music School (CMS) will begin its fall session on Aug. 29. Registration has already begun and will remain open throughout the semester.
     Students of all ages may participate in private lessons on various instruments and voice. Opportunities for group instruction and ensemble formation are also available.
     “In the fall 2016 semester, we will add two new faces to our instructional roster, Katie Walker and Lisa Rhonis. Ms. Walker, a Southeastern voice student, will be teaching voice at our Hammond location, while Ms. Rhonis, who holds a masters degree and is also a certified Suzuki instructor, will teach guitar at our Mandeville location,” said CMS Director Jivka Duke. “In addition, we hope to add a string orchestra class on Saturday mornings on the Southeastern campus."
     Duke said that due to sponsorship of the program by First Guaranty Bank this academic year, the CMS will once again offer discounted tuition to students who are on reduced or free lunch at their schools.
