Purchase My Book!

My Paypal button died so all purchases have to be made in person or via mailed check until I get it sorted out. Please send $23 for the book or $33 for your copy and to sponsor a copy for a young musician. Brian Perkins 12 Decatur St Burlington VT 05401 Thanks

Make-Up Days for Missed Lessons

If you miss a lesson (and let me know in advance) you can come to a monthly make-up session at no additional charge. Make-up sessions happen 11am-2pm usually on Saturdays. Call to confirm and come get caught up with missed material or just enjoy some extra playing time. I highly encourage folks to take advantage of these sessions. Let me know if the time doesn’t work for you.

Ha! This schedule has been totally nuked due to the pandemic. Please let me know and we will arrange a good time for makeup lessons.

Thanks for your understanding.   Brian
