Instruction

NISOM provides on-site instruction to students of all ages and musical abilities. We teach private lessons in piano, voice, guitar, composition, and band and orchestra instruments, plus a variety of group classes, with programs for preschoolers through senior citizens. No experience is necessary, and need-based scholarship assitance is available. NISOM also offers the adult performance ensembles Dubuque Community String Orchestra and New Horizons Band, as well as other community outreach programs for music enrichment. We strive to make music accessible to everyone!
