Blues in the Schools – Oneida Middle School, Schenectady

Tas & Mary Ann Schenectady BITS

On Wednesday April 27th CRBN provided a very special Blues In The Schools presentation at Oneida Middle School in Schenectady.

During an after school guitar class led by music instructor Mike Lawrence, national recording/touring artist and music educator Tas Cru and his musical partner Mary Ann Casale talked about the origins of blues music and taught a blues chord progression.
Lawrence stated “the class was fantastic and an experience these kids will be talking about for a long time to come!“ “They learned a lot of new chords to play. “
This event was a great example of our dedication to providing blues music education and literacy in the community. Events like this are made possible through the support of our members and funding provided by Stewart’s Shop’s Holiday Match funding (  and the Golub Corp.
