Johns Hopkins faculty and staff are invited to take advantage of opportunities to study music and dance this spring at the Peabody Preparatory. Individual instruction is offered through the Adult and Continuing Education program in all orchestral instruments, piano, organ, classical guitar and voice; jazz piano, guitar and bass; and theory, composition and computer music. Group classes are offered in violin, viola, cello, classical and steel string guitar, ballet and ballroom dancing. Adults with prior musical training also may sign up to play in chamber and jazz ensembles. Tuition remission is available for these noncredit personal enrichment courses.

Current students in the ACE program will perform at a free recital at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, in Peabody’s Cohen-Davison Family Theatre. On Saturday, Jan. 15, ACE will host an information session from 2 to 4 p.m. in Peabody’s Bank of America Lounge. At this session, prospective students can tour the campus and have their questions answered by faculty and staff.

The Preparatory’s spring semester begins Monday, Jan. 24. For more information, and to register, go to www.peabody.jhu.edu/prep or e-mail Larry Williams, ACE program director, at larryw@peabody.jhu.edu.
