Course Description

Adult private lessons are custom designed to meet your needs and goals on the instrument of your choice. Private lessons also prepare you play with others and are often used by our students to enhance their playing in one of our ensembles or to prepare for a solo recital at the end of the semester. Most of our expert instructors hold music degrees ranging from Bachelors to Masters and are experienced instructors. Register for this class if you have not previously taken lessons with the Community Music and Arts Center. Once you register and answer a few questions about your needs, our staff will contact you to match you with an instructor and time slot.
