We accept new students year-round, subject to availability. Now is a great time to plan ahead for a January or February start!
BRIGHT STARTS GROUP CLASS OPENINGS
LEVEL 1 CLASSES We started two new Level 1 classes (age 5.5 to 9) in September. At this time, both classes are full. We expect new classes to begin in September 2024.
LEVEL 2 & 3 CLASSES We do have Level 2 and Level 3 classes (age 6.5 to 10) meeting Saturdays at 10:30 and 11:45. Both have one or two spaces open for transfer students. If you're a lightly to moderately experienced beginner age 6.5 to 10 and not loving your current individual lesson placement, our unique group program could be a great fit for you!
INDIVIDUAL LESSON OPENINGS The schedule is tight...but we do have several openings for new students:
MON/WED/THURS/FRI AT 3:45, 4:00, and/or 4:15 PM (availability to schedule siblings back-to-back or concurrently)
WEDNESDAYS AT 5:30 and 6:00 PM
SATURDAY MORNINGS EARLY
ALL WEEKDAYS AT/BEFORE 3:00 PM (availability to schedule siblings back-to-back or concurrently)
If you are serious about starting lessons, we hope you'll still reach out, even if the above times don't work for you.
AGES/LEVELS We teach all ages and levels! Adult lessons? Yes, we do that!
IN-PERSON LESSONS In most cases, we are teaching in-person in our beautiful Falls Church studio! A few students may choose remote lessons or a mix of remote and in-person instruction.
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.
