It has been a challenging end of the school year. A big shout out to all our students and teachers who have left making music through this difficult time. One of our MYC/Piano teachers, Kumi Bergman, even organized a ZOOM piano recital. We will be teaching all summer. Hope everyone can have a great summer vacation.

Contact — Hungry Monk Music

Along with everyone else, we have been confronted with this unprecedented health crisis. While our in-person private and group lessons have been on hold, all of our teachers have been conducting online lessons with their students. Hungry Monk Music teachers will continue to teach and welcome new students throughout the summer. Our in-person lessons are one-on-one and we will keep a safe distance and follow safety protocols as outlined by the CDC. Our online lessons are also available and recommended. As always, if you are interested in starting or continuing lessons over the summer send us a message through our website and we will connect you with a teacher.

As guidelines for business allow for more openness we are looking forward to welcoming our students back to Hungry Monk Music. We will continue to use our regular cleaning service to keep our environment safe. We intend to continue following guidelines to be as safe for our community as possible.

Our summer camp schedule is still posted on our website. We are currently making decisions regarding these camps and encourage you to sign up. We will communicate with our students regarding summer camps as any changes are made.

We hope that we will all come out of this challenging experience with new ideas, new skills, and a new love for the reason we all gather here in the first place: to make music. Thank you for your support.
