2015 Spring Semester: 8-weeks (April 27-June 20)

Students currently taking lessons from a faculty instructor will continue with their faculty instructor. Students taking from any other teacher will have a sub teacher for 8 weeks.Because we have the same goals and teaching philosophy, taking from a “sub” teacher in the prep school is not a big adjustment. We find that students often enjoy a change up for a few weeks. And, taking from someone different temporarily is often a motivator for students because they want to impress the new teacher.
