In order for musicians to learn new musical skills or revitalize old ones, the Second-Wind Band recognized the need to form another band, now named the First-Wind Band. No auditions and no prior experience needed; all that is required is the desire to learn to play an instrument. For those who are interested, but do not have an instrument, the band has several instruments for rent. Playing music is not only fun, but is good for your mental and physical health. Ask any of the members and they will tell you that it keeps you active and involved, and is a great way to make new friends. For more information, contact band director Greg Vaughn .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  Price for Summer Session $15 Members, $17 guests. Fall Session begins September 10.
