Hey everyone, during this Corona virus outbreak CMP is ramping up its lessons on FaceTime, Skype, and Google. If you are a student who can’t get to their teacher right now you are welcome to study with us online. We will send you back to your regular teacher when that’s possible again. Just email me thru the Contact page and we’ll find a solution for you.
