Group Class/Ensemble and Theory Registration

We supplement the private classes with groups, ensembles and theory classes. Select your group and/or theory based upon the level description. If your child has only recently started, please contact the school to see if your child is ready. 
We appreciate your continued support and will help or answer any questions immediately.
