Beginner Informance - September 28 - Our informance is going 100% virtual

Required event for all Beginner Violin, Viola, Cello, & Bass students.

This event is not for beginner harp students as we will not be discussing harp technique.

Parents, please plan to attend virtually with your student. We will discuss the technique unique to your student's instrument that they have been working on for the first 6 weeks of class. Your student will perform their new skills and demonstrate some of the different learning objectives for you. Students will need to make sure they have their instrument at home, out and ready for the meeting. This event will take no more than 30 minutes.

Violin & Viola families: Sign up for your Informance time slot HERE

Cello & Bass families: Plan to attend at 6 PM as originally scheduled - just virtually! We will be sending you your zoom link on the afternoon of the 28th.
