Private Teacher Directory

We are grateful to the hundreds of private teachers who provide instruction to GTCYS students. As a thank you to the teachers who specifically refer individuals to GTCYS, we create an annual private teacher directory to recognize their work and increase visibility for their studios. Please contact program assistant Katie Heilman with questions.

Note: This listing does not represent GTCYS’ endorsement or recommendation of an individual; nor is it a comprehensive list of all GTCYS teachers. Rather, it recognizes teachers who referred students to GTCYS and provided their studio information for this year’s public directory.
