ACADEMY

FALL 2020 Semester

Sep. 8 - Dec. 18, 2020

 

The Premier Virtual Academy

Over the course of this semester, participants will participate in a curriculum specifically designed for distanced learning and students with limited access to instruments. TAPS OA can accommodate your personal schedule, as all classes will be recorded. Each student will regularly interface with distinguished faculty and participate in:

14 Masterclasses — AUDIT PACKAGE AVAILABLE

 5 Private Lessons with TAPS Faculty

 4 Video Review Sessions with TAPS Faculty

During this time of such uncertainty, The Academy is an opportunity to enrich your University or Conservatory program or serve as an alternative for students choosing to defer. In order to accommodate students and schedules from all corners of the world, the program can be completed in real time or at your own pace. 

 

At TAPS, we do not believe economic hardship should hinder opportunities. As a result, a variety of need based financial aid packages are available, including the Alan Abel Memorial Scholarship - a full tuition package. Scholarship applications are available after registering at  www.tedataktzpercussionseminar.com/enroll.
