Community Music Program


Dear WVU Community Music Program patrons,


My name is Dr. Eftihia Arkoudis and I am happy to greet you as the new director/coordinator of the Community Music Program following Mrs. Karen Taddie's retirement. 


Looking ahead to the coming academic year, I would like to thank you for the understanding you have shown during this interim period. It has been a joy to see you continue your music education with us and invest in the artistic growth of our community's youth. 


I am looking forward to meeting you all virtually or in person and welcoming you back.
Registration shall remain open throughout the Fall 2021 term and soon there will be an announcement regarding our returning group classes: Digital Photography, Harp on It!, and Piano for Adults.

Warm regards,

Dr. Eftihia Arkoudis
