Early Music

Fall Semseter Begins: 

Tuesday, September 8:       Fall Semester Private Instruction begins (17 weeks)
Tuesday, September 22:     Fall group classes and ensembles begin

 

Classes via Zoom

Classes will initially be taught via Zoom in an interactive style, with the intention to gradually incorporate a combination of remote and in-person teaching (for those who are interested). MIC will proceed with an abundance of caution, basing all decisions on the most current guidelines provided by the CDC and the governor.


In addition to group class offerings in Early Music, private instruction is offered in: baroque violin, viola da gamba, recorder, natural trumpet, harpsichord, and organ.  Inquire Now >>
