Project CHEER is a program designed to give an opportunity for musical exploration to children primarily in the
Summit-University neighborhood of St Paul. Currently children receive instruction on piano and/or guitar in two fifteen
minute sessions per week. These lessons are semi-private (two children are instructed at the same time). While one plays, the other student learns by watching and listening. Children also have opportunities for group participation in Music/Theory classes. At least three times per year recital events give an opportunity for the children to display their progress in all the above areas.
