In A Time Warp Of Peace
Holland mind you, is very Dutch ? the city was founded only in 1847 by Dutch Calvinists escaping persecution in their native land. Holland has some 170 churches for its relatively small population, and because of this the city used to be known as the ?City of Churches?.
The culture is distinctly Dutch, conservative but not radically so. Among its curiosities is a huge 240-year old working windmill with 40-ft. sails, which is the only authentic Dutch mill in the U.S. It is still operational and produces stone-ground flour. A Latino population has moved into this Dutch city in recent times.

As you can expect, Holland has a fairly firm foundation for music, though it?s neither a showcase nor a breeding ground of famous talent. But it is true that often some of the best talents come from small town America. So you never know ? the next big name may after all come from Holland. If you want to learn music, you can easily find the right kind of guidance here. Piano lessons, violin lessons, guitar lessons, drum lessons, base guitar lessons or voice lessons, you will find everything in this city.
Before you start learning, decide. What?s your goal in taking up music? Do you want to make a career out of it? Is your love of music strong enough that you believe you can hone your native talent to rise up to professional level? Of course you can also learn music lessons in Holland simply because you love music and have always wanted to sing or play an instrument.
