Join your fellow music ministry members to further your musical knowledge!
“MUSIC 101” is an 8 week educational workshop designed for those who wish to better understand the basics of music.
Open to the entire parish!

All workshops will take place in the OLR Chapel from 6:00p-6:45p

“1- AND- A- 2- AND- A- 3” – Want to know what that fraction means at the beginning of your music? Why are some notes solid and some not? How long should I rest? Come learn basic note values and how to read rhythms.
Led by Thom Wyatt on Thursdays: October 9 + 16
