New conservatory group looking for a few good musicians - The Prescott Daily Courier - Prescott, Arizona: "PRESCOTT - Chino Valley High School student Cheyenne Jasper, 14, quit the guitar and took up a fiddle, and now she says she is ready to fiddle her way around the county as part of Sharlot Hall Museum's new Cultural Arts History Conservatory.
'Playing the guitar was not in my best interest,' Cheyenne said during a pre-audition session. 'So I switched to the fiddle and everything just clicked. Now it is a big part of my life.'
Kent Gugler, a music teacher at Heritage Middle School in Chino Valley and the director of the Heritage Middle School String Band, is leading the 12 students selected to form the band. The conservatory is for student musicians ages 10-18 years old."
