Summer Programs

Instrumental and Vocal Instruction

Instrumental and Vocal Instruction is offered all summer, and you can customize the number of weeks to suit your needs.  Summer is the perfect time to “test drive” a new instrument or to continue studying with your regular teacher (check with our Registrar Song Gonzalez for summer faculty availability).
