Semester Dates and Winter Break

At Forbes Music Company, the year is broken up into two semesters and a “summer” semester. We closely follow the school calendars, but they may not match exactly. Here are some highlights:

  • Our Fall 2017 semester begins on Friday, September 1, 2017 and ends Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
  • Our Winter Break is Friday, December 22, 2017 through Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
  • Our Spring 2018 semester begins on Thursday, February 1, 2018 and ends Saturday, June 30, 2018.
  • For students signed up for semester plan, winter break dates and Federal holidays are excluded for convenience but we can still schedule lessons during this time.
