to teach
A new program which starts this
month may offer the community music
classes in everything from the lute to
the harpsichord, according to School of
Music Prof. George Cavender.
The Preparatory and Community
Enrichment program (PACE) will of-
fer classes taught by graduate students
in string, wind, and percussion in-
struments, and in voice, piano, and
"WE'VE JUST received official per-
mission (from the University) to in-
stitute the program," said Cavender, a
former director of the University Mar-
ching Band. "It will provide enrich-
ment for the immediate and surroun-
ding areas and is open to everyone."
Classes will be offered from begin-
ning to advanced levels. Roughly .20
doctoral students from the music school
will serve as instructors.
"We will use the qualified graduate
students that we have," Cavender said.
"They will be highly competent instruc-
CAVENDER said that the program
will start on a small scale and grow
with demand. "We're going to stick our
toes in the water at first. We'll ex-
periment and expand," he said. "We'll
augment the program as much as we
need to because we don't know the ex-
tent of the project."
The program will be self-supporting,
Cavender said, although fees for the in-
struction have not been set.
The program will also provide extra
income to graduate students who are
hard-pressed by cutbacks in loans and
financial aid, Cavender added.
PAUL BOYLAN, dean of the music
school, said the program "has been in
the plans of the school of music for at
least a dozen years." The program may
make up for instruction which has been
cut from several public school budgets,
Boylan added.
PACE MAY offer courses in such an-
cient instruments as the harpischord,
viola, and lute if the community shows
an interest, Cavender said.
