347-3842, Cottonwood, CA). Run by Martha Boyle who teaches
fiddle. They teach a variety of instruments there. WANTED:
USED FIDDLES. Martha Boyle is teaching fiddle
classes in Cottonwood and Red Bluff, CA. There is a
great need for instruments. She's loaned out all of
her used fiddles she personally owns to students of
families in financial hardship situations. She's
accumulated quite a few economy fiddles over the years
from students that upgrade to a more quality
instrument. But they are all out on loan and she needs
more of them to help a few others out. If you have any
sad, lonely fiddles hanging out in a dark closet, some
child would love to be playing it! She will take any
size and will pay up to $50 for them depending on the
condition. This is about what you'll get if you sold a
used student grade fiddle on ebay. Buying them from
you saves her shipping. Extra bows are also needed.

OF THE REDWOODS: (Arcata, CA area) - College of
the Redwoods Music Department announced that beginning
AUG 26 2013, community members can learn to play
guitar or beginning band instruments (brass,
percussion, or woodwinds), by enrolling in new CR
Community Education classes. Community Education
students will be joining CR's college credit students
in the same classroom in these innovative classes.
Credit students will receive grades and college credit
that will transfer to California State University
system. Community Education (CE) students will
participate fully in all of class activities, but will
not receive college credit. CE Department is offering
students the opportunity to buy two CR music classes
and get one free. Each class is $149. CR's music
classes have long been popular with the community and
now anyone can join. In order to simultaneously meet
CR students' needs for transfer credit and to serve
the North Coast community's desire for personal
enrichment opportunities in music, CR's music faculty
and administration developed an innovative new
two-tier enrollment system that involves offering
enrollments through both its Community Education
Department and as regular college credit classes. "The
instructors are hoping to see a blend of new and
familiar faces," said CR Music Professor Ed Macan. CR
Associate Faculty Ruben Diaz will teach beginning and
intermediate guitar students in a group setting. Class
includes familiarization with fretboard, fundamental
music notation, common chord progressions, and
develop≠ment of finger independence. Intermediate
students will also continue their development of
guitar skills in both group and individual formats.
Students continue to develop finger independence and
chord construction abilities, and are introduced to
reading notes from treble clef, improvising over
common chord changes, and performance practices
appropriate to specific musical styles. Beginning band
instruments classes give students an opportunity to
bring their own or rented instruments and learn how to
play brass, percussion or woodwind instruments. New
and returning adult students of all ages are welcome
through the CE. class. More
info on CE or for schedules or registration or
call 707-269-4000. Register for college credit, go College
of the Redwoods and enroll through WebAdvisor.
