STARS would like to invite you, on April 7th and 9th, 2015 between the hours of 10:30-1:30,  to an Open House for students and families to meet our newest tutor, Matt Rogers for instrument demonstrations, direct Q & A with him, as well as signing up for an opportunity to try sax, flute, or clarinet themselves.  Matt will be offering private lessons with STARS on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you would like to set up free 30 minute trial lesson, email him at Matt@MattRogersMusic.com.  We are so fortunate to have him join us and to have a musician of this caliber teach our students.  Matt has also been asked to be a soloist for the Easter sunrise service at the Lincoln Memorial and will be performing with Michael Tait of the Newsboys.  He would love to meet you and has invited students to come down to the stage afterwards to say hello.
