Do you or your child want to learn how to play the piano or cello? Enhance singing skills? Become a better actor? Then PRESTO is for you! PRESTO is the performing arts education outreach program at Salisbury University. PRESTO offers quality instruction to students of all ages, levels and abilities in the Salisbury community and surrounding areas. It is housed in Fulton Hall, where participating students have the opportunity to access its facilities, faculty expertise and students. Individual lessons are offered for strings (violin, viola, cello and bass), piano, voice, guitar, most orchestral and band instruments, theatre, and musical theatre. Group lessons are in Suzuki violin, theatre and musical theatre. PRESTO is perfect solution for those who, when asked if they play an instrument, say “No, but I always wanted to.” Now is the time to say instead, “Yes, I am learning.”
PRESTO Plus is a group piano class designed for adults who want to learn to play the piano for fun! No pressure to perform or excel, just learning piano for the joy of playing! You don't need a background in music, this class starts from the very beginning!
Dr. Nan Richerson, a Salisbury University piano faculty member, teaches both classes. She enjoys working with adults, and has developed Recreational Music Making (RMM) programs for adults in Louisiana, Kentucky, and Maryland.
Classes meet on SU's campus in Fulton Hall, Room 234. This room is equipped with a piano lab, and has 10 digital pianos. Each piano has a headset with earphones and a microphone that is connected to a conferencing system. This enables students to hear the instructor's voice and piano in addition to their individual piano (so students do not hear one another playing!). The conferencing system fosters a relaxed, stress-free learning environment that offers privacy in the midst of a group setting.
Spring Session begins in January, registration opening soon!
