New Instruments

 It is never too late or too early to play an instrument. Saturday, Zane State College made it easier for community members to do just that.

Residents got the chance to learn instruments like the mountain dulcimer, harmonica or even the ukulele.
Music instructor Joe Zsigray chose the instruments for their unique qualities.

"They are interesting instruments and they are instruments that a lot of people don’t have experience with today," said Zsigray.

Songs were basic and included classics like "Mary had a Little Lamb" and "Hot Crossed Buns". Zane State offers this to give people in the community a chance to try something new and get involved in music.

"I consider it to be the signature of the human spirit so if you can express yourself artfully you get in touch with your humanity and become more human," answered Zsigray.

If you missed Saturday’s event, Zane State is planning to offer the same program again in September.
