kingsfriendmusic.com + firstname.lastname@example.org + 910.548.0505
Kingsfriend Music is the music education ministry of Sean & Lara Capparuccia. Together we have taught music for over 26 years, have homeschooled for 22, and have lived in the Onslow area for 19. It is our hearts’ desire to share our love of music with others to the glory of God. Although our program is geared toward homeschoolers, it is open to all students and parents/adults as well.
Please note: Registration for Band and Chorus for the new school year is held in August. Please check the website every so often for updates and announcements.
We currently teach in both group and private settings.
