Students at Penn now have a chance to polish their musical skills, thanks to a new program launched by the Office of College Houses and Academic Services.

The program, which started this month in Community, Goldberg, Harnwell, Hill, Kings Court and Ware college houses, matches interested residents with professional musicians for music lessons in voice, piano or violin.

Between 20 and 25 students are currently participating in the program, filling all available spots.

College Houses and Academic Services subsidizes the cost of the music lessons. Students pay $40 per hour, while the office pays $20. Lessons take place once a week for roughly 10 weeks.

Each college house participating in the program is assigned a senior music associate - a professional musician who gives lessons in one instrument. For full coverage, check tomorrow's Daily Pennsylvanian or log onto
