2. Spring Break
We are still scheduled to have our spring break on Monday, 4/6 to Sunday, 4/12. There are no private lessons scheduled during this week, as this is already built into our 48-week tuition and school year. Add-on lessons are available if you'd like to schedule a lesson during Spring Break with your teacher (just email email@example.com).
During Spring Break week, we will be holding a free "Pop-Up Bonanza" with at least 10 online pop-up classes all related to fun music topics. That's 5 HOURS of music education programming available to you for free during Spring Break! Schedule to be released soon.
3. Virtual Recitals
I'm excited to announce that Opus Music School will be hosting live virtual music recitals online on Zoom. This free online event allows students to display their music skills to their friends and family all over the world! Everyone will join on Zoom from home and performers will play on their own instrument at home in front of a live virtual audience.
Our first virtual recital date is: Sunday, April 26, 2020.
This is open to all active Opus Music School students. For more info or to register (first come first serve), go to www.opusmusicschool.com/virtual-recital.
