     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Community Music School (CMS) is accepting registrations for its 2017 session, which begins on Aug. 28.
     Registration has already begun and will remain open throughout the semester, however registrations received after Aug. 21 will incur a $20 late fee.
     The 13-week fall semester will offer private lessons on various instruments and voice to students of all ages. In addition, violin, viola and cello students who have one year of previous experience may participate in the five-week orchestra session. Opportunities for music theory classes and ensemble formation are also available upon request.
     "We are excited about the upcoming semester and working with our talented students,” said CMS Director Jivka Duke. “We look forward to putting on music performances at different venues throughout the community, such as the Jolly Jingles Market, the Hammond Farmers Market, at Live Oak Village and many others.”
     Duke said the generous sponsorship of First Guaranty Bank will allow the CMS to once again offer discounted tuition to students who were on reduced orfree lunch at their schools during the 2016-2017 academic year.
