Private Instruction

Weekly private lessons are offered in piano, voice, guitar, percussion, strings, woodwinds, and brass.


Faculty are professional instructors who have advanced degrees in their instrument and/or significant professional experience.


Students are given a weekly lesson for 30 or 60 minutes. Instructors design lesson plans appropriate to the student’s skill level. Curriculum includes the development of performance skills, technique, theory, and general musicianship.

Minimum Age Requirements

Guitar: age 6
Other Instruments: age 12

Each semester will culminate in a student recital.
