POTSDAM — SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music will once again offer free music instruction for local children this year.

Crane music education students will provide free instruction for home-school and private school students on woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. Children ages 9 to 15 (or in Grades 4 to 8) can learn to play flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, cornet or trumpet, trombone or percussion.

Crane undergraduate students will provide weekly lessons for children as a part of their music education curriculum. Lessons are taught using a variety of engaging instructional approaches and musical styles, for students at beginning through intermediate musical levels.

Lessons begin on Thursday, Sept. 12, and space is limited.
