CURRENT OPENINGS As we look ahead to January/February, we expect a tight schedule during "prime" times with additional options in early (3:00 and before) and late (at/near 8:00 PM) slots. We do have a very few prime openings on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BEGIN LESSONS... Don't wait for us to post more openings to this space! The best way to find out about openings is to just get in touch, now! Regardless of what today's openings are...we always want to hear from interested students/parents in the community. Sometimes, we have flexibility which goes beyond what we can post here. Contact us! We'd love to hear from you.
REMOTE/IN-PERSON In nearly all cases, we are able to teach in-person in our beautiful studio. Some students may choose remote lessons; a few may choose a mix of remote and in-person instruction.
AGES/LEVELS All our openings are available for all ages and levels.

IN-PERSON LESSONS While the Studio remains open by appointment only, we are now available to teach in-person lessons for all students. If you want to come in-person, yes you can! If you are currently attending remotely but prefer to come in-person, just ask your teacher. 48+ hours notice, please. If you are a new or prospective student, just contact us to make an appointment. We can meet you in-person at the Studio for your FREE interview and/or for your lessons.
REMOTE LESSONS While the Studio is back open for in-person lessons and most students are choosing to attend in-person, we are able to switch your lesson to remote-status whenever it is necessary (48 hours notice, please). We also are continuing to teach remotely for those students who prefer or require that option.
MASKS We thank you for continuing to wear a mask while inside the Studio.
GUESTS/WAITING ROOM We have a large and comfortable waiting room and practice nook and it's open and available for your comfort! You may also choose to bring a reasonable number of guests (i.e. a friend or your siblings) with you. Note that the waiting room is open for you only around your appointment time.
WORKSHOP CLASSES In-person Workshop classes have resumed. We continue to offer a limited number of remote workshops as well.
BRIGHT STARTS CLASSES We have resumed the Bright Starts group beginner program with one Level 1 class on Saturdays. We only programmed one class this year, both to limit capacity and because we were unsure of demand. This class is now full. We look forward to welcoming more new students into the program in September 2022!
