More info

Elyrica is open to students of all levels and ages from age 8 through adult, lever and pedal.  We always have a great group of adults, and a variety of repertoire from classical, folk, Latin, and popular.  Every year I am amazed by how much each participant learns and grows through the week.  In 2020, with our Online program, students participated from all around the northeast, the Chicago area and from Europe!  We always have wonderfully talented and dedicated faculty and guest artists to work with us, too.  I hope you will be a part of this year’s program.
