covid-19 response

Although our campuses remain closed due to the pandemic, we are very much open online! We are offering online private music lessons and limited group classes, which our teachers and students are really enjoying. If you would like to try, please contact our registrars; we would be happy to set a trial lesson for you. 

While we wait to reopen, we encourage you to support us by taking an online class, buying a gift certificate for a future class, or making a donation.  Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon!
