|The Freemantle Music Conservatory was created in 2007 to serve the members of the Copper River Valley. In addition to conservatory-level private instruction in strings, piano, winds, voice, composition, improvisation, and music appreciation, the conservatory has an active outreach program consisting of recitals, concerts, and workshops.
This site is also a calling card for the compositions of Richard Freeman-Toole, composer of pedagogical compositions, as well as music for concert, stage, and film.
