SUMMER MUSIC LESSONS

Summer is a time of many opportunities. Children and youth have hundreds of opportunities to explore new activities as well as hours of extra time to enhance and perfect musical skills they have begun to acquire.

To sign-up for your child’s 2019 summer lessons, complete the registration form and return to the office by May 24 or email it as attachment to lrappoldt@berkschristian.org by June 7. However, summer lesson sign-ups are accepted at any time in May, June or July. Since BCS students live in various school districts, summer lessons may be held either at BCS or your home.
