VANDALIA — The following is important information for parents of students in the Vandalia-Butler City Schools:

New Music Course offered at Butler

A new music course has just been added for next school year: Class Piano. This course is designed for students who wish to develop basic piano playing skills or expand upon their existing skills. Time in class will be spent both on and off the keyboards. While playing, students will be working individually and in small groups to master the techniques of playing and to learn assigned pieces of literature appropriate for their skill level. Time will also be spent learning basic music notation and theory. The class will be limited to 16 students due to the new keyboarding hardware that will be installed in one of our computer labs. Students who have an interest in this class should see their counselor this week to adjust their course requests.
