We've re-tooled for the 2020-21 School Year. The Music & Tutoring Afterschool is still an academic and fine arts program but we're making our program available during the day as well as afterschool when school resumes on Nov. 2. We will provide the wifi, space, lunch and recess for students during the virtual school day and still help with homework--even when it's in Spanish--for students in afterschool. Now in our 17th year, our program will still provide weekly fine arts lessons in piano, violin, brass, dance and art. And we will make sure our students and parents have the technology support they need.
