Group shares sound of music
BY JACKI SPIES
Every weekday afternoon the
sounds of musical chords echo out
of the United Methodist Church on
The melodies aren’t from the
church orchestra but rather are
produced by elementary and mid
dle school children who, thanks to
the Carolina Music Outreach, are
given the opportunity to learn how
to play instruments.
“It’s a student organization that
pairs up student volunteers that
want to teach elementary and mid
dle school kids that can’t afford to
pay for music lessons,” said Mark
Frank, co-president of the organi
Frank said the organization typi
cally has about 12 to 24 volunteers
who teach music to kids between 6
and 14 years old.
For a small fee of $lO to cover
the cost of books and other neces
sities, children are taught to play
instruments including the piano,
violin and the banjo. Voice lessons
also are given.
“Volunteers are provided with
books and rooms, and they con
duct the lessons themselves once
we pair them up,” Frank said.

student at Phillips Middle School,

“I tried to take piano lessons
when I was younger, and then my
teacher decided to quit teaching,”
“And it was something I wanted
to do since I was a little kid.”
In addition to the piano,
Hernandez has experience in the
woodwinds section as well.
“I already play the clarinet, and
it’s fun to learn a different instru
ment,” she said.
Carolina Music Outreach,
founded by Christine Moseley,
originally was created as a
branch of the Carolina Hispanic
Association to teach Spanish
speaking children how to play

Spanish and saw how expensive
music lessons were,” said Natalie

Although the organization has
made great progress, Mattocks said
there are some obstacles that still
hinder its development.
Frank said that as students
continue to yearn for music, the
program needs people to donate
“It makes a huge difference in
a child’s progress if they have an
instrument to practice on, and
since we are targeting a demo

one, it would really help,” he said.
