     Hand in Hand Bayonne Music School began in 2010 as a joint ministry of Trinity Parish in Bergen Point and Grace Lutheran Church, offering affordable, accessible music education to young people of this community to foster growth of body, mind, and spirit and contribute to a balanced, positive and creative life. The Music School has grown and expanded into Hand in Hand Ministries, which now encompasses ESL (English as a Second Language) classes, Citizenship classes, and the Hand in Hand Art Program. 

     Hand in Hand Bayonne Music School instructors include: Rich Casella (guitar), Marianne Greiman (piano, violin, and voice), Samantha Hitchell (reeds), Katrina Kleinmann (sax, piano, and reeds), Starlyn Lopez (trumpet, trombone, and brass), Kim Rich Norton (piano and voice), and James Sanderson (piano and organ). 

     If you are interested in enrolling your child in lessons on the musical instrument of his or her choice, please call Kim Rich Norton at 201-443-8260 for more information. Scholarships are available on a need basis.
