Our spring program consists of 12 classes/lessons, a mid-semester jury day, a final performance weekend with an all-day recital camp followed by a formal Solo Recital and a formal Concert for the group classes and ensembles.

This spring our focus will be on gospel music. Recital camp activities will include workshops on aspects of performing the gospel genre in addition to the usual rehearsals for the concert.

Group classes, ensembles and orchestra are 60 minutes.
Private lessons, music theory and the premier recorder ensemble are 30  minutes.
We serve a free lunch at noon on most teaching Saturdays for our families, staff and  church members.  (Please let us know if you would like to help serve or to  donate food, paper goods or drinks.)
