Pont-du-Casse: registrations until October at the music school

Published on , updated

On 11 last September, at the initiative of departmental council to revive music schools, that of the municipality of Pont-du-Casse, directed by Sylvie Massalaz, organized a concert which also marked its return to school.

The Pont-du-Casse music school offers initiation or improvement in four instruments: the piano (40 students registered for this season 2021 / 2022), the guitar (26 students), drums and flute. Thanks to a partnership with the conservatory of Agen, children and adolescents who register at this school can follow (at the same preferential rate) the courses of the conservatory for an advanced improvement or access to other instruments.

90 students enrolled all instruments

The four teachers attached to the music school welcome their students from Monday to Friday (after school) and Wednesday all day. Instrumental lessons are generally individual and last approximately 30 minutes. Collective musical training courses (solf├Ęge) at several levels are also provided. Note that a “musical garden” is offered to toddlers who cannot yet practice an instrument (nursery school level).

Several shows every year

Every year, the music school puts on shows which aim to motivate the students in their practice: at Christmas, around the month of May (piano concert) and end of June for the big end-of-year show. In collaboration with the media library, the music school embellishes reading sessions called “reading in white and black”. The school also participates in many municipal events. The adult choir, after almost two years of hiatus, will restart. The health pass will be compulsory but it will then be possible to sing without a mask.
