The Alpha Mu Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma visited the Warren Music Conservatory located at 202 Pennsylvania Avenue, West on Saturday, Feb. 23.

Joseph and April Glarner spoke to DKG members about the conservatory’s mission, which is to encourage musical enrichment, enjoyment, and appreciation of the arts in our community throughout all stages of musical development.

The founders are Joseph Glarner and T.R. McKotch. It was the vision of Glarner to restart the Music Conservatory, and McKotch, owner of the Sound Rhythms Music Studio in Jamestown, N.Y., was the perfect fit to help.

Their goal is to become a central location for music in Warren County, where they strive to preserve music knowledge and education, as well as create a place for music instructors and professional musicians to come together to teach and perform.

The Conservatory offers private lessons, group classes, master classes, and performance groups for all ages and skill levels; always looking for professional and talented individuals to assist as mentors, teachers, volunteers, and donors to their cause.

You can learn more about the conservatory by visiting www.warrenmusicconservatory.com, or by visiting their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/warrenmusicconservatory.

DKG members enjoyed listening to a student take drum lessons during their visit.

Delta Kappa Gamma promotes professional and personal growth in women educators and excellence in education.
