Whether you're a beginning, intermediate or advanced student, private lessons with a supportive and motivating instructor are the best way to develop your skills.

Private lessons are offered in cello, clarinet, double bass, flute, French horn, guitar (all styles), oboe, percussion, piano (classical, jazz, musical theater), recorder, saxophone, trumpet, viola, violin, voice (all styles) and theory/composition. Lessons are 30, 45 or 60 minutes. Students may begin private lessons at any time during the school year and summer. Registration is open year round.
