* Pipers Weekend Tutorials: We offer the opportunity for students registered for our Pipers Weekend to enroll in one or more private lessons with our weekend instructors. These lessons are scheduled on a first-come/first served basis and cost $30/half hour.

We will schedule these lessons during breaks in the program or on Sunday afternoon at the convenience of the instructor.

Less skilled players are welcome to listen in all classes to master what they can and record the rest for future work.

Snow Policy for our January Weekends: We offer an early-bird discount on our January weekends to encourage students to sign up in advance. If we are forced to cancel our weekend due to extremely bad weather we will offer our students a FULL refund. If we run a program, there will be no refund for last minute cancellations.

Class size is limited, advance registration is highly recommended.
