Truth be told, like many of us you may have played a musical instrument (sax, trumpet or perhaps the flute) in high school band, and then…well, life intervened and you put that instrument down.
Meet New Horizons, and learn how you can bring that music back into your life as they perform and talk about their music activities. Some of the musicians started playing music as beginners during retirement. Dr. Roy Ernst, founder of New Horizons Music, will talk about the benefits of playing music and ways to get started.
