SCHEDULE: Students' schedules for the day will vary depending on their age and level. You will receive a personal schedule a few weeks before the workshop (note you must register before the deadline). All students will have a group lesson and enrichment class. In addition, there will be extra activities available.
 
Masterclass lessons are offered for an additional fee on a first come, first served basis. Lessons are held with 2-4 students per hour who will be grouped by level as much as possible. It is important to be on time for your lessons since the order has been set for specific scheduling reasons.
 
All students are encouraged to observe other classes. A parent talk will be presented. A pizza supper for Saturday evening is sometimes arranged and supervised by parents. This is a fun way for students to get together and socialize!
 
Class schedules will be drawn up beginning January 20, 2020.
