What are your kids doing during Feb. vacation? 🌨️
MAPFLC has a 3 day workshop. Group lessons in the morning, and private lessons in the afternoon. Keep your kids occupied, healthy, and learning this Feb. vacation!

We just added an "Art and Programming" only package for families that want to focus solely on those two subjects. Plus, no instrument needed, and the classes begin an hour later in the day (which is good for those on other timezones).
