Update on summer learning…

Some more highlights of the previous two weeks

We had 4 Theory classes and Tatiana Kruse is teaching our Junior Auralia class. Summer is the best time to improve sight singing and strengthening music theory.

Next week we’d start Grade 6 Theory, Grade 4 Theory and Senior Auralia. Will be educational and inspiring. All Apple TVs and ice cream are ready 😛😋
