Term 2 Concert
The studio concert was a great success, thanks to all students for playing, John Tungyep on piano, and parents for your strong support of your child’s learning.

Zoom lessons
In-person lessons should be replaced with Zoom online lessons whenever anyone (including me) has cold or flu symptoms, has Covid, or is a close contact. Please try to give 24 hours notice regarding a switch to Zoom. Please update Zoom and use an external microphone for proper immersive online lessons. Audio settings must be musicians’ settings (otherwise I can’t hear your violin!).

Term 4 starts Monday 2nd October, ends Friday 15th December
No lessons 9th Oct, 6th-7th Nov.
