2018 Summer Program

We are happy to offer a variety of lessons and classes for you during the summer. Our summer session starts June 25 and goes through August 24. We reserve the right to cancel any class that does not meet our minimum requirements for holding a class.

Payment due in full upon registration. All registration fees listed below are per family. Offerings are subject to change. Please check back often for updates.


Private Lessons:
We will offer private lessons throughout the summer.  We understand that summertime can be really busy with vacations and summer camps, so we offer flexible lesson options during the summer.  We just ask that you let us know which weeks you will be here so our faculty can plan accordingly.  You can register for lessons at any time. Some of our teachers may be away for part or all of the summer. For returning students, if your teacher is away, we will let you know and will place you with a different teacher for the summer.
