Instructors

We are always adding new talent to the list, so we may be in the midst of updating this page.

So, check back often or give us a call for more information about new teaching talent coming in.

Private lessons can be held in home, on site at Opus headquarters in New Hope, at the Robbinsdale Studio, Online (virtual lessons), and at local elementary schools through a partnership with Community Education.
