Several short piano camps with themes may be held during July if there is interest.
ie: composing camp, music history camp, music games camp, note reading camp, etc.  I’ll have interest sheets out early in the year so families may plan their activities. Each camp will have an individual cost.

There are usually no regular lessons during the week of a Master class or a Recital
Recital weeks usually involve one or more rehearsals
** All dates are tentative, though probably will occur on that date.  Other events may come up as the year moves ahead.
Guild, CAPMT, Federated & MDP participants will have several rehearsals prior to the auditions.  I will let you know the dates.
