Statement on Covid with schoolyear

For the safety of our teachers, students & families we ask that you wear a mask when attending a lesson, use common sense in determining if you are too sick to attend and work with your teacher to find the best method of learning this fall. 
2020 has been a year of adapting and our teachers have risen to the challenge going out of their way to try online lessons, learn new technology and adapt their teaching to meet their student's needs. 
Because our teachers are independently contracted through our program we allow them the freedom to choose whether to offer in person or online classes or a combination. Please use your best judgement to determine what is best for you!

We partner with area schools to bring lessons to more area students. We travel and we work within your budget to offer lessons at a competitive price.
