All lessons, group classes, ensembles, and “co-seat” college courses will take place in an online format for the spring semester.

Our instructors are experienced in delivering high-quality musical instruction in an online format using Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, etc., as well as providing technical assistance on how to get everything set up. In order to take online lessons and classes you will need a reliable internet connection, device (smartphone, computer, tablet, etc.) and place where you can make music.

With our online offerings, you can count on weekly sessions of enjoyable music making.
