Your monthly tuition is a retainer that reserves your time slot in the teaching schedule. If you have your lesson in school, there will be lessons on all regular school days with the exception of field trips and testing. Every effort will be made to reschedule conflicts for another day that week.
There will be a student recital each spring (between April and June). Information on date, location and recital fees will be given out at least a month in advance.
Lesson locations: Naperville, Oswego, Plainfield, Joliet, Illinois Math and Science Academy
Information on competitions and other performance opportunities are given out through the year. The major local competitions in this area are the Chicago Flute Club Competitions (Nov.) and the Society of American Musicians (Feb./Mar.) competition. There are also many concerto competitions sponsored by youth orchestras and other local symphonies. The other major performance opportunity each year is the Sherwood Festival of Flutes each January. Though not a competition, it is a great opportunity to perform, receive comment sheets and get to hear students from all over the area.
Holiday breaks: Thanksgiving weekend, Winter Break, Spring Break, Fourth of July.
Optional lessons by special arrangement during Winter Break and Spring Break
