Work with Mr. Cole once a week in a private lesson or group lesson format.  There is an enormous amount of music to learn for this show, and it starts now.

There is minimal flexibility in terms of when you rehearse in September and October depending on other school activities you are involved in.  Preference will be given to students who can commit to this rehearsal schedule.  Talk to Mr. Cole about your schedule to determine if you are able to participate.

These rehearsals will sometimes go until 9 pm or later.  If a rehearsal goes late, dinner will be provided.
