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. Scholarship assistance is available. 

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