 Lessons 

Individual instruction with our faculty is available in 30, 45, and 60 minute increments in all categories below. Please visit our facult webpage to view their biographies and related information.

 

During the academic year (fall, winter, and spring) lessons are offered on a weekly basis. During our summer term, scheduling is flexible allowing for vacation time and other needs. We offer a recital every quarter to showcase our students accomplishments. 

 

As is common with private music study, curriculum is often 'tailor fit' to the needs of the student.  It is of primary importance that the student's needs are met.  Thus, instructors are encouraged to be flexible with repertoire, technical studies, and the incorporation of the study of music theory / ear training in their lesson plans, as is appropriate to the student's developmental stage and interests.
