MUSIC AROUND THE BEND
The instructor-owners at Dennis Port’s West Bend Music bring a passion for music to their students and the community.By Lisa Cavanaugh | Photography by Michael and Suz Karchmer
On any given day, amid the bustle of Dennis Port’s main Route 28 drag, pleasing notes of piano, guitar, violin, ukulele, mandolin and even an Irish whistle emanate from the storefront of West Bend Music. The four musician-instructor owners, Monica Rizzio, Demetrius Becrelis, Alex Becrelis and Clayton March run a thriving music education business here—while still finding time to perform their own songs and sounds.
West Bend Music prides itself in its diversity in teaching students of all ages. Recent research has found that music uses both sides of the brain, a fact that makes it valuable in all areas of development. Music affects the growth of a child’s brain academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Learning an instrument helps keep the mind and body active for older adults as well. Our goal at West Bend Music is to bring a community closer together thru the gift of music. All ages are encouraged, it is never too early or too late to chime in. Come join us in the celebration of music that is the human experience.
Entry fee is $8 per person.
