We offer FREE beginner music classes for all ages at Vanderbilt Avenue Moravian Church. Students will learn the basics of select musical instruments, how to read music, and play in a group.

  • We currently teach recorder, guitar, bass guitar, piano, and drums.
  • Please bring your own instrument to the first class, if you have one. We will also help you find the appropriate instruction book.
  • Music stands, microphones, and special sheet music will be provided.
  • Students must purchase their own recorder, usually about $10.

Our instructor, Valeda Zaage-Bell, serves as our church organist, and is fully licensed by the NYC public schools to teach all grades in music. She is also part of the faculty at the Staten Island Conservatory of Music.
