Summer Private lessons enrollment is open! Don't forget to sign your student up! 

Our spring term will end May 25th, and summer lessons will begin right after that.  Summer lessons are a little bit different than school year lessons, because we let you schedule around your vacations and you can reschedule and do multiple makeup lessons.  So you can double up some weeks on lessons, or a skip a week, etc.  We recommend that ALL students continue summer lessons in come capacity to keep learning.  You can sign up for 6-12 summer lessons, and are invoiced according to how many lessons you take.  BONUS:  when you sign up for summer lessons, you can also reserve your spot for the fall!  Sign up here.
