*Academy is closed only on these dates, as our calendar is designed to offer our students an average of 4 lessons/month.  Otherwise, lessons will be taught on schedule.

 PLEASE NOTE:  An extended break from lessons of more than 2 or 3 weeks usually results in significant “back-sliding” in technique as well as theory.  Therefore, please take advantage of our teachers’ willingness to work around summer vacation schedules to maintain continuity in the progress of students.  If an extended break from lessons is necessary, please remember to give the 30 day notice as stated in our policy.
