Students will take one private lesson per week, one class per week, have access to three studio hours per week, participate in one performance workshop and conclude the course with a recital on August 7th. Collaboration with instructors and other students is highly encouraged but not required.

Students should expect to spend 6-10 hours a week dedicated to learning and practicing music.
