Summer Classes

I’ve been dreaming up some ways for us to stay connected and keep singing this summer. While students are very welcome to continue their lessons in the same format they’ve been studying all year, I always make a point to offer special focuses for summer lessons. If you’d like to spend the summer doing something and you don’t see it here, please reach out to me and if we can make it happen we will!
