We are about to start our master class series. This is a way for our students to get instrument-specific information from professionals who teach and/or perform on their primary instrument. We have had lots of success with growth in our students through these master classes.
For eight weeks starting the week of November 16, each instrument will have one day when our master class instructor will go into our class meeting and work with our students in a small group. Some of our students are on campus for class and others are virtual. Our master class teachers will be virtual and will work with both virtual and face-to-face students.
