Student Honors: RCM Exams 2022-23

Monday, November 14, 2022 | Student Awards and Honors

It's early in the year, but we have already had several students earn honors in this rigorous but non-competitive event! Unlike most festivals and contest, students need to do more than play one or two pieces, but also to demonstrate a broad base of skill at each level. Learn more about it via rcmusic.com

Current Openings

Monday, November 7, 2022 | News

We accept new students year-round, subject to availability. At this time, our schedule in "prime time" hours...that's after-school and weekends...are mostly full. Even when the schedule is tight, we still welcome your inquiries. And we still have lots of space weekdays at/before 3:30* as well as Tuesday and Friday mornings.* [*can accommodate siblings back-to-back or concurrently]

IN-PERSON LESSONS In most cases, we are teaching in-person teaching in our beautiful Falls Church studio! A few students may choose remote lessons or a mix of remote and in-person instruction. 

REMOTE LESSONS If you're interested in hybrid or remote lessons, you should give special consideration to our wonderful teachers Ziwei Zhou and Aphrodite Mitsopoulou. Both these fine teachers have plenty of space and flexible scheduling for mostly-remote lessons. Remote students have access to both in-person and Zoom workshop classes as well as in-person studio recitals, all of which are free and included within our regular tuition.

BRIGHT STARTS GROUP CLASSES We started new-beginner classes on Wednesdays at 5PM and Saturdays at 9:30 AM back in September. These classes are now full, but a waitlist is available. We anticipate starting more "level 1" classes for new beginners in September 2023.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BEGIN LESSONS... For your convenience, we try to summarize current openings here. But 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.  

AGES/LEVELS All our openings are available for all ages and levels.
