    Hi there,

    I’m very interested in sending my daughter to a Frozen camp. Any chance you’ll offer additional sessions this summer? All the weeks that she could possibly attend are full.

    Hi, I am interested in piano lessons for my 2 daughters, Sadie, age 11 (three years experience) and Lulu, age 8 (one year of piano experience). We have a friend, Sammy Lee who takes from Angie and that is how we heard about you. Please let me know if you are taking new students for the summer.

    My daughter (13) is interested in guitar lessons this summer. She has been playing the violin at school for 4 years. I am wondering about availability and cost.
    Thanks !

  4. My daughter would like to study drum set, ideally starting right away this summer. Private lessons are preferable, small group is an option. Please advise on the schedule and prices for July –
    August 2014 classes. We will also consider to continue during the academic year. Thank you,

    My 8-year-old son (who went to one of your Lego camps one summer) is interested in taking cello or piano lessons. Is there any kind of music exploration class that introduces him to a variety of instruments before he commits to one?

  6. Tyra Edwards says:


    I am looking for cello and piano instructors for my 12 year old son. He is homeschooled, so ideally, day hours would be preferable. Is this something you can accommodate? If not, do you have any recommendations?
