Class Descriptions

MASTER CLASS. An individual lesson with a master teacher where a student presents their polished piece. After their lesson, they will observe the other student lessons. Parents attend this class, taking notes on their child’s lesson so that the assignment for each day will be understood and they can help their child prepare for the next day’s class.

READING ENSEMBLE. Students become more familiar with the written language of music while experiencing group ensemble work.

TECHNIQUE/REPERTOIRE. Students will bring back old songs we worked so hard to perfect in lessons past. We will prepare them for performance. Pieces must be performance polished. See repertoire list below for song lists.

ENRICHMENT. Each participant also participates in two enrichment classes. This is an opportunity to learn something new or broaden our experience. For description of classes, visit our Enrichment page.

Full-day students will be enrolled in Hip Hop Dance and Arts & Crafts.


Tuesday: Orientation at 8:30 am. Students have classes from 9am to 4pm.

Tuesday-Thursday: 9am to 4pm. We will break for lunch from 12-1pm and recitals will be held at 4pm. If you wish to participate in one of these recitals, audition information can be found on our Honor Recital page.

Friday: Students have classes from 9am to 3pm. Final concert will be held from 3-5pm. 

NOTE: For the final concert on Friday, students wear black pants or skirts (knee length or longer) and white tops (no sleeveless, please) with black shoes and socks.
