Need a piano? The Tobacco Valley Senior Center in Eureka would like to donate their upright to an aspiring piano student. The piano is free, but you have to haul it away. Call (406) 297-2188 if interested.

Interested in a different instrument? Please complete the questionnaire at the bottom of this page.

The Creative Arts Council (CAC) is thrilled to announce the formation of a working partnership with North Valley Music School (NVMS) in Whitefish, Montana. The two nonprofits intend to offer private music instruction at the CAC in Eureka supported by the organizational structure and scholarship support of NVMS.

On October 18, 2019, NVMS delivered a piano it had donated to the CAC.
At NVMS since 2004, Tina has been teaching piano for 17 years. She has a Masters in Organ and Ethnomusicology from Indiana University and has completed her Suzuki Piano Book 1 training. She is the piano half of a local violin/piano duo, and particularly enjoys accompanying soloists and ensembles. In addition to keyboard instruments, Tina plays clawhammer banjo. She has 5 children and lives in Fortine.
The piano will be used to offer private music lessons at the CAC given by Tina Bertram of Fortine and others, starting this fall.

Families wishing to enroll a student should contact NVMS through its website: www.NorthValleyMusicSchool.org.

NVMS has a robust scholarship program thanks to generous donors in the Whitefish area. NVMS intends to offer those scholarships to students in the Eureka area who wish to take private music lessons through the NVMS.

It is the intention of both NVMS and the CAC that this relationship expand to offer private and/or group lessons in various instruments. Interested parties should contact either the NVMS or the CAC (www.CreativeArtsEureka.org).

The CAC is deeply grateful to the generosity of NVMS and its supporters for their expansion into the Eureka area. This initiative promises to open a new chapter in arts offerings at the CAC.

For the schedule of class dates and times, please consult our calendar!

And, please tell us more about what YOU would like us to work on. There are so many possibilities .....

Have a keyboard you no longer use? Please consider donating it to the Creative Arts Center. Some of our students don't have a piano at home. Your keyboard will allow them to practice for their lessons!

(What's more, your donation is tax deductible!)
