In-Person Courses

Everyone learns differently, and it is important to us to offer live, in-person options. Our newly renovated building at 170 Beacon Street has been outfitted with the most current technology in beautifully appointed classrooms, in addition to a gorgeous art deco performance hall and terrace with a view of the Charles River. The best part: once you step through our door, you'll feel like you're in Germany until you leave again!
