The Lowcountry Conservatory of Music (LCM), 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 at 1200 Highmarket Street, Georgetown, South Carolina.
Enrollment is now open with informational meetings scheduled Saturday, Augu. 23 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. for interested students at the Georgetown location and Monday, Aug. 25 from 7-8 p.m. in Mount Pleasant. The fall 2014 semester begins Sept. 2. Students may enroll online at www.lowcountryconservatory.org or by phone at 843-619-7054.
