Classes are taught by industry professionals so children receive the best teaching available for only $395 for the entire program. Through the Summer Youth Conservatory, participants can join other children, make new friends and learn transferrable skills that will benefit them no matter what path they pursue in the future. Classes are divided into three age groups and class sizes are small and personal. Through instruction and encouragement students learn to express themselves, become more confident in front of others, think creatively and outside of the box, and work together.
