UVA Professor Offers Unique Instrument Opportunity

Posted: Updated:

The University of Virginia has received a rare gift, thanks to a teacher with a special talent. Now, professor Greg Howard can teach students his passion - the Chapman stick.

The instrument is something like a cross between a guitar and a piano. It's a string instrument, but it's played by tapping, not strumming. Watch the video above and  click here to learn more about the Chapman stick and Greg Howard.
