Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association Announces New Children's Choir

Our Very Own Marilyn Peters is Starting a Blue Ridge Children's Choir on September 14th!

With art and music being cut from our school systems, children are on the verge of missing out on some of the greateast treasures in life. Marilyn Peters is one teacher who is ensuring this doesn't happen.

Marilyn has a bachelor's degree from North Georgia College and State University in Music Education and a Master's Degree in Music Education from Boston University. She will begin working on a doctoral degree in Music Education soon.

Her background includes performing in choirs and instrumental ensembles, directing choirs and instrumental groups, teaching general music and music appreciation in public schools, kindergarten through 8th grade, and providing private lessons for the past 20+ years. She has been teaching music and directing choirs in middle and elementary schools for the past 7 years in the North Georgia mountains area, and also conducted teacher choirs, middle school and elementary school choruses and assisted in writing and directing many musicals. She also gives private lessons in flute, guitar and voice through the Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association, and now the Youth Choir as well.

Class dates, times and tuition are as follows:

Beginning to Intermediate
Tuesdays, Sept 14-Dec 7 (4:30-5:45pm)

Tuition: $60 (Art Center Members $54)
Learn vocal & sight singing techniques, breath control, note reading and other music basics.
