New Vista offers students the opportunity to study music with professional musicians.
Marimbas are wooden-keyed, xylophone-like instruments that are played by striking the keys with mallets. For performances, individual resonators hang beneath each wooden note to amplify the sound. Students are taught this magical music by Cory Potash, who has been teaching in the community and at New Vista for many years.
Dave Solzberg is an accomplished musician who has toured internationally, nationally and locally and teaches our Performance Ensemble class. Dave also meets with a dedicated group of student musicians each week throughout the year during "Lunch Band." Dave encourages the student's musical talents while preparing them for a real studio session in the spring, when the group records a CD as their final project.
