     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Community Music School (CMS) is accepting registrations for its 2018 spring session, which begins on Jan. 22.
     Registration has already begun and will remain open throughout the semester; however, registrations received after Jan. 15 will incur a $20 late fee.
     The spring semester will offer private lessons, taught by Southeastern’s music faculty and student instructors, on various instruments and voice to students of all ages and backgrounds.
     “We are excited about the new year, the new semester and all of the events we will be hosting,” said CMS Director Jivka Duke. “In addition to the 13-week private lessons semester for various instruments and voice, students can take advantage of our five-week orchestra session for string instrument players, the Spring Festival for all instruments and the Double Reed Workshop for bassoon and oboe players.”
     “In 2018 CMS will also offer a new High School Band Camp in addition to the annual Middle School Band Camp, and we could not be more excited about providing a platform for the musical endeavors of the younger generation in our community,” Duke added.
     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 or free lunch at their schools during the 2016-2017 academic year.
