Students ages 8-12 have the opportunity to learn traditional instruments such as guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and bass in classes across Stokes County. This is part of a music program offered by the Stokes County Arts Council named Stokes Junior Mountain Music.
The program, funded in partnership with the North Carolina Arts Council, offers low cost group music instruction to 3rd – 7th grade students in Stokes County. Lessons are held on a weekly basis at The Arts Place and Dogwood Event Center in King.
“Access to music instruction, especially on traditional instruments, can be costly and there are limited places to receive that instruction in Stokes County. The Junior Mountain Music program gives the students a chance to join a group full of kids just like them who are just getting started with learning an instrument.” said Eddy McGee, Executive Director.
