Piano


We are excited to be opening our Fall 2020-21 semester on Monday, October 5! Registration is ongoing.

Our model for this semester will be a combination of virtual lessons, occasional in-person lessons and classes, as well as hybrid options. We are following the safety guidelines as set by the CDC and local agencies, as well as parent requests and comfort level. For information on returning to our campus, please visit jccotp.org/faqs. We look forward to having you join us on this musical journey!
