 Group Lessons - Create Your Own Musical bubble!


 

At Ocean Opus, we have learned many useful life lessons over the last couple of years. To name a couple: We have learned that it is important to remain flexible with our students' schedules.  It is also necessary to find new and interesting ways to enjoy activities while remaining respectful of the health and well-being of our neighbours and ourselves.  

 

We are proud to offer the following group lessons, to be scheduled for a time that works for you, with people that are already part of your families’ cohort.
