Summer 2020 - Final Program Celebration!
University degrees are $10k-$50k on average (per year). The cost of this MasterCourse is just $5,997 or $5,000 if paid in full. Custom packages are available as well as payment plans.
Of course, we understand that is a significant investment, but we think you are worth it. Plus if you add up all the wasted time in the practice room, missed opportunities, private lessons and lost jobs or auditions you will start to realize, you can't afford not to do it.
Enrollment will open in just a few weeks and because this is such a highly personal and customized program, we only have a limited number of spots available.
