Updated Group Class Grid . Time sensitive special events information: Sphinx Virtuosi.

We did it ! Our first week at the MyArts building for group violin and cello classes, string orchestra, Sonora and two cello ensembles. Thank you to all who lent an extra hand as we navigated this amazing space together.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP WITH WEEKLY SIGN IN ! Please consider taking a shift.


Upon reflection there were a few tweaks that we needed to make to allow classes to flow more efficiently, create better spacing and add a new book 4 violin class ! Please scroll down to review the group class grid at the bottom of this post for any room changes that may affect your student(s).
