This year we are doing a fascinating experiment – since there are public health restrictions in place on public gatherings due to the current pandemic, we are moving our recital on line!
We will host the recital as a Zoom meeting.
Disadvantages: no piano accompaniment, sound is not the same as live
Advantages: we can invite all our our of town friends and relatives who would otherwise not be able to attend!
Our group program had due be cancelled due to public health restrictions in place on public gatherings due to the current pandemic. Luckily our season was almost over when this situation came up – we only had 3 classes left.
We will be experimenting with online group projects in a variety of formats for our summer workshop week, and hope to return to regular classes at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church as soon as it is safe to do so.

You can start immediately! Beginners join our group classes on Thursday evenings as soon as you register. While you are having fun learning with the group, you can observe a number of individual lessons, meet the teachers, choose your instrument and schedule your personal lesson time. We take beginners year-round, you don’t have to wait until September.
