Music Program 2016-2017

Private Music Instruction


Music lessons make our lives richer by expanding horizons, developing creativity and imagination, and providing a lifetime of enjoyment. Whether you or your child are pursuing music instruction as a hobby or on a competitive or professional level, learning to play the piano or other instrument will help to create a sense of self-worth, a joy of learning, and a love for music.
During the school year, we offer private music lessons for piano, guitar, electric bass, ukulele, percussion, flute, voice, violin, and music theory. All levels accepted, from beginners through college preparatory students.

Not sure where to start? Do you have questions about what instrument would be best for your student or when to start lessons? We can help...just give us a call!
