Tuition is $160 per student and includes all necessary materials. When registering two or more students, the first student is full price and additional students are $140 per student. Classes will be Friday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 am from October 2 through November 20. The series will conclude with a recital on the evening of Friday, November 20.

    This eight-week series offers students grades 1 through 12, of all talents and abilities, an opportunity to develop performance skills in a positive environment.
