She has served as the Music Director of University of Delaware’s A'Capella group, Vocal Point for three years and Cape Cod's professional all-female a Capella group, Cape Harmony.

Holiday & Inclement Weather Policy Information
It's that time of year when the holidays and the weather interfere with our regularly scheduled programs. As a reminder, your tuition is based on a 48 week/4 lessons a month basis. We are open 52 weeks a year which means everyone has 4 built-in make up days per calendar year that we use toward holiday and inclement weather closures. In a typical year we use about two of these per lesson day, however should our closures ever exceed 4 on your lesson day, we will schedule a make up day so that you can get your lesson in. 

PLEASE NOTE:  We do not follow the county school closures. Frequently they make decisions in the morning based on whether or not the buses can maneuver through the neighborhoods. We make our decision to opne/close based on whether or not our staff can safely come to work. If we are open and you cannot make your lesson, we will do our best to find a make up lesson for you but cannot guarantee you will get one.

Not sure if we are open? Check our Facebook Page, give us a call or check your email before heading out.
