Quick Notes:

We are off to a great semester.  Students are settling in and are doing a Fantastic job with the skills that have been introduce thus far.  Please encourage your student to continue practicing the skills that we are covering in class.

I would also like to remind them that “Headphones” are the #1 piece of equipment needed for our programs.  Lost of students still do not have a pair to use and it’s greatly needed.  They only need a simple basic pair with an AUX plug.

Welcome
