Private Music Lessons

Course Description

Our instrumental music program is tailored to accommodate the various abilities of all our students, regardless of age and/or interest. We offer lessons for students starting at age 5 all the way to seniors and from complete beginners to those who are on their way into becoming accomplished musicians. Conveniently scheduled after school hours for children and at any time for adults, our students discover a variety of classical and traditional instruments and receive an unparalleled level of instruction from handpicked instructors. Students have two optional opportunities to perform in solo recitals over the course of the year; one recital takes place at the end of the Fall Semester, and another at the end of the Spring Semester. Also available are a variety of ensembles which engage students in playing music together, an essential skill for all musicians.

Private instruction for all skill levels

Folk Instruments
Learn advanced skills and a greater appreciation for your favorite folk instrument. Bring your own instrument, i.e., banjo, accordion, ukulele, harmonica, or mandolin and let one of our instructors work with you to increase your understanding of its capabilities as you gain a deeper connection to its traditions and performance practices. Open to beginners or advanced students.
