2021-2022 Music Calendar

Theme - Preludes, Etudes & Interludes:  Piano Short Forms

Current students have priority in scheduling.  New students are always welcome and may enroll mid-term. 

In-person lessons are available for all students who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.  Remote lessons are also very effective and always available if you prefer.  With the emergence of the Delta variant, we do kindly request all students who travel out of state please take advantage of remote lessons for the two-week period following their return home. If conditions warrant wearing masks or online instruction, we'll make necessary adjustments.  (Disposable masks are available at the studio.  Feel free to inquire.)  

Please scroll down for more detailed information regarding lessons, special events, term dates, tuition, and more.

Piano Note
Nauset Beach.jpg

We are the music makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
    And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
    Of the world for ever, it seems. 

Arthur O'Shaughnessy
