PICKENS COUNTY — If you’re looking for something fun to do this summer, learn how to play a banjo, fiddle, guitar or mandolin during a summer session of Appalachian music lessons.
The next session of the Evening Music Program will begin the week of May 26.
The program is open to all ages (third grade through adults) and is designed to teach students to play Appalachian music with acoustic instruments that include guitar, mandolin, fiddle and banjo.
The six-week sessions will be held at Easley First Baptist Church in Easley on Tuesdays, at Pickens Senior Center on Mondays and Thursdays, and at Saint Paul United Methodist Church in downtown Greenville on Thursdays.
The cost is $60 per six-week session, and instrument rental is available for $25 per six-week session. The enrollment period is through May 29.
