Summer Music & VBS Program

  Summer Music & VBS Program  
For the last 6 years we have offered free music lessons to members and anyone in the community who would like to further their music skills.  Piano, instrumental, voice and music theory and culture are taught. This year we are also offering a Kid’s Night once a week for an hour of fun and fellowship.  Miss Raquel Freese from Martin Luther College will be the instructor. See below for a bio on Miss Freese.

Instructor Bio
Hi everyone- My name is Raquel Freese, and I am so excited to help with the music program at Christ this summer! I'm from Spring, TX and my home church is Abiding Word in Houston. I'm just finishing up my third year out of five at MLC, double majoring in Elementary Education and Secondary Vocal Music. I have taken piano lessons for 14 years, voice lessons for 6 years, organ lessons for 4 years, and guitar lessons for 2 years. I have been singing in choirs my whole life- most recently I have been singing with the Martin Luther College Choir for the past 3 years. I recently have taken classes in music theory, vocal pedagogy, choral conducting, and teaching music. I also have been involved in musicals at MLC as the rehearsal accompanist for The Sound of Music and the music director for Camelot. I play piano, organ, and sing regularly for worship at MLC and at my home congregation, and I will look to incorporate these instruments into summer music at Christ as well. I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve you and look forward to meeting you all soon.

Please contact me via email with any questions you may have! God's blessings!
