We offer conveniently scheduled after-school hours, evenings and weekends. You will discover a variety of classical and traditional instruments and receive training from carefully selected instructors. Students have two opportunities to perform in solo recitals over the course of the year.

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.
