Private Lessons

Unlike group classes, private lessons are highly focused, more intense, and cater to each student individually. In these one-on-one sessions, instructors assess each student’s unique abilities and develop a personalized plan to progress his or her musicianship to the next level. Private lessons are a great course for beginning music students who want a solid foundation, intermediate students who want to advance their skills, and adult musicians looking for more personalized instruction. Private lessons are $100 per month, includes 4 half-hour lessons. If no time-slot is available for a specific instructor, please Contact Us to explore alternative arrangements.


Tuition is paid monthly for private lessons


Our course offerings aim to provide more than the traditionally taught instrumental and musical techniques. We aim to create opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds to experience music education in an inclusive environment, build a musical community, and encourage participation in the arts!

Tuition is paid by semester for group classes
