I hope you are all staying well and safe. I want you to know how much all the instructors, accompanists and myself dearly miss the entire In Studio family.

To keep everyone remaining healthy and safe, In Studio classes will remain virtual over Zoom for the fall with the hopes of safely re-opening in January 2021. The well-being of the In Studio staff and In Studio students are of the utmost importance to us.
