Below you'll find the dates for the 2017-2018 school year's lesson weeks. Our Academy is arranged into three sessions called terms per calendar year. Each term is 14 weeks, including a recital week, so there are 42 weeks in our musical year.

Recital Week June 1-15th
*After these 9 regular lesson weeks, students and teachers will flexibly schedule four additional summer lessons spread over the remaining 12 summer weeks. If you prefer more summer lessons, we can simply add more a la carte. If you are gone for the bulk of the summer, you can have two or three slightly longer lessons before and after your vacation. We find this keeps the students motivated to practice while still giving plenty of time for summer breaks.
If you prefer, you can also just send us the requested information in the body of an email.
We can send you an online invoice or you can mail a check to pay for tuition. Thank you!
