A Little r & R
women in music
For the first time since opening in 2015, Steve, Katie, and family will be taking some much needed vacation time. From March 27-April 4 the school will remain open and function as usual, but Paul Plumb will be filling in at the desk. We will remain in contact with Paul but we ask that any problems or requests be handled with us either before or after those dates. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.
Our teachers have requested that all electronic devices, including wearable devices, be silenced or left out of lesson rooms unless specifically requested by your teacher.

Time for tune up!
With the warmer weather approaching and the Spring Recital coming it’s a good time to get your instruments cleaned up, oiled, polished, and tuned!
Wooden instruments in particular, like pianos, violins, cellos, etc. need some extra attention in changing temperatures and humidity.
If you’re looking for a professional to do any maintenance on your instruments, just let us know and we can refer you to a specialist.
