Ili NASSAU DAILY REVIEW --LONG ISLAND'S GREATEST NEWSP Novel Building Meets Demand
CENTER REPORTS UNOSIACIIRITH
New Building Now Taxed At End Of First Year In Rockville
The Rockville Centre Music center, Hillside avenue, which houses the Edith McIntosh School of Music and affiliated groups, has closed its first year with a gratify-ing record. To the well-planned building 350 children and young people troop each week for in-struction. The Edith McIntosh School of Music has been established in the village for a number of years, starting with a few pupils, and growing to the point where large quarters in the professional build-ing were no longer adequate. Even the new building, which was de-signed to permit of considerable growth, is taxed to take care of the constantly increasing number of pupils. A third Steinway grand was added to the school, recently, making seven pianos which are in constant use. Has Varied Studies The school gives instruction in piano, violin, violoncello, organ, harp, musical theory and musical appreciation. To aid in the last subject, there are brought to the school at intervals, artists of note, who present programs of high standard. The drama studio, under direc-tion of Lorena. Robbins Nutzhorn, provides instruction in the art of expression, including diction, pub-lic speaking and play production. A dance studio, with Jeanne Shibley at its head, offers classes in ballet, social and tap dancing. Apart from the education activi-ties of the center, the building is filling a need in the village, by providing facilities for musicales, study groups and social affairs in keeping with the character of the place. With its variously sized rooms, it can accommodate larger and smaller gatherings, and has become an institution in the com-munity. . On the staff of teachers are Miss McIntosh, Mrs. Erna Luetscher, Miss Irma Harter, George Porter ',smith, Miss Marion Noyes and Marion Marsh Bannerman.

Music Center is One Year Old

This week marks the first anni-versary of the opening of the Music Center on Hillside avenue. Built by Edith McIntosh for the purpose of housing her long estab-lished School of Music, it has al-ready far exceeded anticipation in its usefulness to the community as a center for the cultural de-velopment, as well as social activi-ties of its young people. Through careful planning of its facilities, including a large recital hall, class rooms and studies, the Music Center has been found ade-quate for a variety of educational interests, attracting students from a dozen or more north and south shore towns. The School of Music offers instruction in piano, violin, violin cello, organ, harp, and mu-sical theory and appreciation. The Drama Studio under the di-rection of Lorena Robbins Nutz-horn, provides instruction in the art of expression, including dic-tion, public speaking, and play production. The Jeanne Shibley Studio of Dance provides classes in ballet, social, and tap dancing. In addition to the regular educa-tional activities of the Center, the building is filling a long felt need in providing facilities for musi-cales, study groups and social af-fairs in keeping with the character of the place.
