Good Morning,

I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and a great couple of days back at school!  We have some awesome classes this fall at the studio, so grab your spot today.  Please share with anyone who might be interested in music instruction this season.

You can find complete descriptions and register for all of the classes at  Even if you have told me or emailed that a student is coming to class,  please make sure you still fill out the google form at  Classes begin next Monday, August 24, and run through December 7.  If students do not have an instrument or books the first week of beginner classes, don’t stress, the teacher will let you know where to find everything you need.  You can find information about the teachers at  Teacher contact information is also listed to sign up for one of the last few private lesson spots available.

Keyboard Classes – Ms. Jenna outfitted the studio with a brand new, top of the line keyboard lab for new students to learn the basics of the piano/keyboard.  With two different classes, parents can choose to put kids in the relaxed kids class or the faster moving teens class!

Twinkle Mini Stars – A “glee club” vocal class for ages 6-12, this is an outlet for kids to sing their hearts out and learn the basics of vocal study.
