2024 Mirabilis Studio Summer Session

Our 8-week Summer Session will run from:

                                                      Monday, June 10th – Friday, August 2nd

We will keep your current time slot unless you request a change.  If you wish to do an extra slot during the summer please let me know and we’ll get that set up.
As always we will do our best to accommodate your summer plans.
Cost for the Summer Session is $250

Our Master Classes will be the week of July 1 – 5 and this is also a good week for make up lessons.  We will be off on Thursday, July 4th for the Independence Day holiday.

Eclipse Day and Other Make-ups
Monday students will have their Eclipse make-ups on Monday, May 20 at the usual times.
Other students needing a make-up lesson will need to schedule a time for Tuesday, May 21 or Wednesday, May 22.  Please be sure to let me know if you are in need of a make up lesson.

Fall Semester
For those of you planning ahead, our Fall Semester will begin on Monday, August 19th.

Mirabilis Studio and Schreiner University Collaborative

Our collaboration with the Schreiner Music Institute begins with our Summer Session.  You won’t notice much change in the way we do things—the studio remains an independent entity. But we will now be included in advertisement and promotion as a part of the Schreiner Music Institute.  This also means that our current lesson space in the Rock House, which we all love, is assured for the foreseeable future.   I am proud that starting June 1, we will officially be a part of the university’s team!

Schreiner University Summer String Camp

This summer Schreiner University will be including Guitar in their summer camp offerings.   Mirabilis Students who are interested please contact me and we will work out a plan to include your usual private lesson in addition to all of the fun offerings of the string camp!  The camp is open to students grades 6 -12.

Date: July 22- 26
Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm

Info and registration.
