Museum summer programs
Riding the Rails With Art, the DeQuincy Railroad Museum’s summer programming, will offer free piano lessons to adults and children ages 10 and up.
Seven weeks of classes began Thursday, June 18 and will be held each Thursday until July 30 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the DeQuincy Railroad Museum.
The focus of “Piano Basics” is to enable the learner to play using a lead sheet, while having a basic knowledge of reading music notated on a staff. Participants will learn about notes and rhythms, as well as intervals and chord structure.
Bring your own keyboard. Teaching will be interactive. The instructor will be Robin Buford Fontenot.
Call the DeQuincy Railroad Museum to register at 786-2823. Classes will be limited.
Funding for this program is provided by the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury through the Arts and Humanities Council of Southwest Louisiana.
