August Student of the Month!

Congratulations to Nathaniel K, who is our August student of the month. 

Nathaniel (Nate) is 11 years old, and takes trumpet lessons from instructor Karl. He loves biking, video games, swimming, and baseball. 

Karl says about Nate: "Nathaniel does music theory homework over the summer, leads his class in trumpet chops, learns pop and movie sountrack songs every week, and even composed a song of his own!" 

Awesome job, Nate! Keep up the good work!

Dance Recital This Weekend! Here's What You Need To Know


All performances will take place at Seattle Children's Theater in the Seattle Center. Student Check In is located at the Admin Entrance. All performances will be about an hour long. Students should come in costume hair and make up, ready to go. Check in times are earlier than the performance times because we have the kids do a quick run through of the show to get used to the big stage and lights.

Tickets will be available at the door by cash or check for $21.
