PRIVATE MUSIC LESSONS
Did you know that the study of MUSIC can help improve students’ grades, can develop skills necessary in the workplace, can give children a means of self-expression and can even help a child’s sense of empathy? It’s never too late in the year to start private music lessons. We have year-round registration.
Our professional, experienced teachers are all background checked and Safe Sanctuary certified annually. Lessons typically cost $22-25 per half hour and are done weekly. We also offer Group Lessons for Strings that cost $25 and are every other week for an hour. Contact any of our teachers below to set up lessons today!
