Private Lessons

  Private lessons are one-on-one with the instructor and are a wonderful way     to begin music instruction or improve your skill.

  No experience is required. All areas of study are open to both children and       adult students.

  Lessons are scheduled once a week and are available in 30, 45, and 60-             minute increments. Instruction is offered year-round through 

  three school-year trimesters plus a summer session. Begin at any time               during the year; tuition will be pro-rated for those starting mid-session.

  To get started, see registration information. Teachers’ available times vary.       Please contact our office for current scheduling information. Browse Faculty
