3. Calendar Reminder

Please note that the school will be closed from March 31st to April 6th for spring break. For those classes fall on these dates, your lessons balance out as there were 5 weeks in February/March hence you don’t need makeup classes.

Here is the school calendar for reference in case you need it for future reference.

4. Student News


With great joy we would like to announce that Eileen, student of Katrin had successfully passed RCM Level 8 Practical Exam with First Class Honors.


Tani’s student, Eden finished her composed song. With her teacher’s help she wrote it down last week and she’s practicing it now to polish it. Creativity is a big component of our lessons, and we’re proud of our students taking on an artistic role in their learning.
