Music is said to be the universal language of mankind, and the staff at Langley Community Music School feel that language shouldn't have an age limit.
The school is launching a number of new programs this year and offers many session in a wide range of ages.
"Everything from babies and toddler programs that start at three months... to seniors programs as well," said the school's assistant principal, Carolyn Granholm.
To help the public see what the music school is all about, they will be holding an open house Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"There will be an opportunity to meet faculty, to tour the building, and just learn more about what we do," noted Granholm of the festivities.
Additionally, there will be refreshments, opportunities to learn about programs and classes, register, and even attend free guitar playing level assessments between noon and 2 p.m. with guitar instructor Ray Pullen.
The non-profit charitable organization is committed to providing high quality music education to the community. It is one of the largest independent music schools in the province.
Among some of the unique classes at the school are hand bell ensemble, group guitar lessons for adults, and the early learning group classes.
"We'll do a [group] adult piano class if there's interest," Granholm said.
