Lonergan Music Studio

Updated February 4, 2011

Greetings 'cellists, parents of 'cellists, and lovers of music!
Welcome to the Lonergan Music Studio website.

Winter 2011 lessons began on January 31st, and - as in the Fall semester - lessons continue for an 18-week semester according to the calendar of the the Ann Arbor Public Schools. New students will be accepted on a pro-rated basis at any point in the semester until space is filled. If you're seeking a cello teacher, please look around the site and contact me by phone or email. I'll be happy to talk with you and answer questions. The studio offers a complimentary trial lesson, and I invite you to observe other lessons by arrangement.

The website has been updated for the Winter 2011 semester, including the entire Academic Calendar and Winter Group Class flyer. Winter Group Class dates have been revised so be sure to avoid using an old calendar if you have one (Winter groups will now begin on February 19).

Scroll below for some important dates to note.

I look forward to another great year, and I hope you'll be joining us soon!
