Current Openings

Saturday, June 15, 2024 | News

SUMMER As we transition to our flexible Summer Session, we have lots of open space and flexibility to schedule lessons, especially on Saturdays.  

NEXT SCHOOL YEAR Our 2024-25 School Year starts August 23 and we're currently in the process of scheduling our returning/continuing students.  

INDIVIDUAL LESSONS We expect a tight schedule next school year during prime times...meaning lessons starting 4:30 to 7:30 PM Mondays through Thursdays.  But in less-sought after slots, we have plenty of openings for new student. This includes Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays as well as early weekday slots around 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 PM.  

BRIGHT STARTS GROUP CLASS OPENINGS 

LEVEL 1 CLASSES We will start new beginner (age 5.5 to 8) classes in September 2024. We'll have a class on Saturdays at 9:30 AM and one on Wednesdays at 5:00 PM. Kindergarten students should choose the Saturday class. Both the Saturday and Wednesday classes are nearing capacity, so if you're interested, please don't wait. Contact us today. Once the classes, full, we'll keep a waitlist in case there are drop-outs.  

LEVEL 2 CLASSES We have two Level 2 classes: Mondays at 5:00 PM and Saturdays at 10:30 AM. The Saturday class is currently full, but the Monday class has space for transfer students. We'll also keep a waitlist. For a student age 6 to 10 who is not loving their current individual lesson placement, our unique group program could be a great fit 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. 

Summer Recital 2024

Monday, June 10, 2024 | News

One Sunday, June 8, 2024, we presented 117 students in recital in four different groups. Each student presented themselves with confidence and with good musical communication. In total, we enjoyed 168 unique pieces! Students ranged in age from 6 to 18, plus a handful of adults as well. 


Our summer recital isn't quite the point of what we do in the studio...but it's the only day in the year where we hear what everyone can do, all in one day!
