ArtPlace Music aims to provide the highest quality music instruction to interested students outside of the traditional school setting. This program has come to fruition because of our newly formed partnership with accomplished music instructor, Lane Thompson. Mr. Thompson has over a decade of experience teaching students in both individual and group settings. He is an invaluable asset and we are grateful for his willingness to support this ArtPlace program. We will begin our first 13-week Spring session on Monday, March 5th. All lessons will be held in the ArtPlace gallery at 212 West Washington Street in downtown Greenwood.
