Meet our instructors, participate in sample activities, and get answers to your questions.

Following that, from 2:15 to 3:00 pm, students in grades PreK-12 and adults interested in private lessons can sign up for 15-minute mini-lessons. This is a great opportunity to meet our Hoff-Barthelson faculty members and experience firsthand what private instruction is all about.
