Sample classes & lessons!
Our instructors will be on-hand for sample classes and private lessons!
Try a private voice lesson!
Mr. Hummel will be conducting FREE mini voice lessons in the Sondheim Studio from 1:30-2:45pm. We will only be able to offer a sample 5-minute private lesson to 15 students, so be sure to arrive early to sign up! Students must be between the ages of 13-18 in order to try a sample private voice lesson, and we ask that you bring a song prepared, preferably in the musical theatre or classical style (but anything will be fine!).
See what piano lessons are like!
Miss Karissa will be doing private piano lesson demonstrations from 1:30-2:30 pm in the Gershwin Studio. Students between the ages of 8-18 can sit at the piano and try it out with the guidance of an instructor. At 2:30, Miss Karissa will then take students between the ages of 4-7 as a group to see if they’d be interested in piano lessons or one of our Piano Readiness classes!
Try a group glass!
Miss Kirsten will be holding sample voice/theatre/musical theatre classes for younger students in the Jennifer Garbovan Actors Studio! For descriptions of what each class entails when it’s offered over an extended time, see our group instruction page. The class schedule is as follows:
