We offer private music lessons for students of all ages and levels of experience. Our experienced teachers offer individual, one-on-one lessons. Students learn necessary skills and habits so they are successful in their musical goals and explore a variety of musical styles.
Individual lessons meet once a week for 30 minutes. Lesson tuition ($20 to $30 per lesson) varies according to the instructor. Tuition is paid to your teacher at the first lesson of each month.
To get the most out of their lessons, students will need an instrument to practice at home. In many cases we can offer affordable options, so students can have a rewarding and positive learning experience.
