Upper Valley Music Center and Lebanon Libraries Launch Partnership
Lebanon, NH. Upper Valley Music Center and the Lebanon Libraries are launching a new
partnership to bring music education programs into the Lebanon public libraries. The series
of participatory events will include free monthly programs in a variety of musical genres and
topics. UVMC and Lebanon Libraries invite the public to develop musical skills, knowledge,
and a life-long love of music.
The goal of this collaboration is to make music education accessible to Lebanon and Upper
Valley residents by offering free programming in a welcoming community space. Programs
will be designed to appeal to a broad range of ages, interests, and musical backgrounds, with
activities for people with no musical experience as well as opportunities for people with
experience to learn new skills. Programs will be presented by UVMC faculty as well as guest
musicians, all experienced music educators who are skilled at leading interactive and
engaging classes. Participants can learn more about instruments, gain a deeper understanding
of music theory and history, or immerse themselves in the rich history and cultural
influences of music from around the world.
The program kicked off on January 27, 2023 with a DJ Workshop led by UVMC faculty
member Sean Hay, aka DJ Sean, a well-known local DJ who shared beginning mixing and
hosting skills with 10 teens and adults. Programs will be offered approximately monthly and
dates announced on a quarterly basis. The Spring 2023 series includes a blues guitar
workshop, a music class for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, and a traditional music jam.
Plans for events later in the year include sing-alongs, an instrument petting zoo, and an
Indonesian gamelan workshop.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Lebanon Libraries to offer a range of music
education programs designed to inspire and educate people of all ages,” commented Ben
Van Vliet, Executive Director of UVMC. “Whether you're a beginner or an experienced
musician, we have something for everyone.”
UVMC received a grant from The Lane and Elizabeth C. Dwinell Charitable Trust to support
these free events, as well as additional programs to make music education programs more
accessible to the community.
The Upper Valley Music Center is a non-profit community music school based in Lebanon,
NH, serving more than 1,200 students a year from across the Upper Valley region of
Vermont and New Hampshire. UVMC’s expert faculty work with beginning through
advanced students and teach programs designed for ages birth through adulthood. Founded
