String theory

Rowan Brown asked for a violin for Christmas, and is now learning how to play the new instrument with classes from Stephen Rockwell, an instructor with Pierre Music Store. Rockwell and former Gettysburg resident Kerry Freidel teach classes to all ages in piano and string instruments at the United Methodist Church in Gettysburg every other Saturday throughout the spring. Rowan, who is in the second grade, is the daughter of Reece and Joey Brown, and is learning to play on a violin that is smaller than most, but is just the right size for her.
