Expires 6/15

Just a reminder that we are expecting a very busy summer season this year for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons is that even though 70-80% of our students have been back in person for a long time, we are going to have a lot of new students that have been cooped up and are ready to come back and get in person lessons. That means we’ll have a jamming summer session!

What does that mean to you? A lot of our teachers are already full. They have no spots available. Even though we do have some availability at each of our 2 locations, it varies location to location and instrument to instrument. What we don’t want to happen is for somebody to withdraw for summer, then try to call us back in August and discover we have no spots for them.

So, remember, if you’re a current student or if you want to come on and join us, this is the way we could help you for the summer so that you can keep your day and time with your teacher when August resumes. 

We have 4 great summer make-up options for you.

  1. Zoom in for your lesson.
  2. Request a pre-recorded makeup for your lesson with advanced notice.
  3. Take advantage of our group makeup options.
  4. Sublease your spot to a family member or friend.

Most importantly, enjoy your summer. Go to the lake, travel, have fun doing whatever it is you’re going to do. But don’t lose your spot with your teacher by withdrawing because you will want to keep that spot, especially a prime time spot between the hours of 3:30 and 7:30. Those are the spots that are in the most demand.

So, take advantage of our summer make-up options. Contact the office and they can help you!
