Take a piano workshop

Donn Rochlin, an instructor at Mt. Hood Community College, will offer a Just for Fun Piano workshop 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the college.

The workshop is offered for beginners as well as seasoned players suffering from what Rochlin calls “post-traumatic piano lesson stress disorder.” Rochlin has a philosophy that students should have fun learning and lay the foundation for a lifetime of creative expression.

Tuition is $65, and an additional $25 will be collected for a book and CD.

Following the workshop, Rochlin will offer a How to Improvise on the Piano class from 2-5 p.m. the same day for $65. For more information, call 503-491-7572.
