6-week Live Online Session

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of our future ability to congregate, we have decided to discontinue in-person classes for the rest of the session.

While we are not going to be holding in-person classes, we are opening up a six-week session of live online classes via Zoom. Classes will run from April 6 - May 15 and we are also working on organizing a virtual end-of-session recital for all interested. 

  • Each class meets two or more times a week and archived videos will be available to class participants (students must be enrolled to receive access to class videos).
  • Since we cannot provide the individualized attention and in-person feedback we value in our classes, we are offering this 6-week session on a sliding scale, asking you pay what you can towards our teaching fees.
  • Minimum enrollment is needed to continue classes. This proposed schedule is based on what we think will work best for our community; times and classes may shift depending on participant preference/availability and enrollment demands.
