Dear Students and Parents:
We are gearing up for our Summer II 6 week session, June 15 to July 25, 2020. All classes will be online. Make sure that you have confirmed a private lesson time with your teacher. Group classes are listed below. We have seen that the last 10 weeks online have been very productive and students have made great strides. This is the silver-lining to Corona….lots of time to practice. But, we really look forward to seeing everyone in person.
Congratulations to our String Academy students Cyrus Urheim and HunterTang for being awarded the Junior Scientist Award in the Genes in Space Competition.
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
