Teacher Development Program

The SAA has set strict limitations on the number of students that can be enrolled in a Teacher Development Program course.  Registration will remain open up to June 20 for Teacher Development Program courses whose limits have not been reached. Note, students who are waiting for SAA approval of an audition in order to meet the prerequisites for a Violin or Cello Book 1 course should register to hold their seat.  If for any reason the audition is not approved, they will receive a full tuition refund.

Student Program

Registration officially closed June 1 and assignment of children to classes is underway.  If you missed the registration deadline, we still may be able to accommodate your child if there are class sessions with openings at his or her level of advancement.  If you do register and we are not able to accommodate your child, you will receive a full tuition refund.
