The Lowcountry Conservatory of Music, a newly established nonprofit music education program serving Charleston and Georgetown counties by promoting excellence in music through high-caliber private music education and public performance, is pleased to announce its inaugural enrollment for Fall 2014.
Founding directors and Mount Pleasant residents Michael and Agnes Giuliani dreamed of the idea to start a nonprofit music conservatory, which will offer individual and small group instruction to early childhood, pre-college and adult students.
Now a reality, the Lowcountry Music Conservatory will offer applied lessons (private, semi-private and group) in a variety of disciplines including string, guitar, woodwinds, and brass as well as a robust academic program featuring casual community-oriented courses such as Note Reading, A Journey Through Music History, and The Art of Listening, comprehensive courses in Music Theory and Music History, and a College-Preparatory Certificate Program. LCM faculty is comprised of the area’s finest music educators, many of whom are active performing artists.
Students can take advantage of the Conservatory’s offerings at two Lowcountry locations: Eastbridge Presbyterian Church, 3058 North Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant and Old Winyah High School 1200 Highmarket St., Georgetown.
Enrollment is now open with an informational meeting scheduled on Sat., Aug. 23 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. for interested students at the Georgetown location. The Fall 2014 semester begins Sept. 2.
Students may enroll online at www.lowcountryconservatory.org or 843- 619-7054.
Artistic Director Michael Scott Giuliani said the Conservatory’s purpose is to serve the entire community, young and old, rich and poor, with the highest caliber of private music education. Need- and merit-based scholarships will be available.
The Lowcountry Conservatory of Music is also offering several free performances throughout the year including the ongoing Summer Concert Series, Music at Noon, each Wednesday through Aug. 27 in Georgetown.
