Private Lessons for Adults

We welcome all students, regardless of age or level, and place them with instructors who tailor their teaching style to the individual. Whether revisiting their instrument or picking one up for the first time, our two hundred adult students are experiencing the rewards of studying music. Taking on a new creative challenge is a great change of pace for most busy adults.  This is a time for you, with your teacher, to explore your musical options. From there, joining a group, playing on a recital, or just enjoying practicing is a reward in itself.
