Currently, we offer private lessons in piano, strings (violin, viola, cello, and bass), guitar and voice.  The minimum age to begin lessons is four years old.  For voice, the minimum age for private instruction is 13 and subject to the approval of the vocal instructor (children's voices mature at varying rates).

As part of our emphasis on broad musical education, all students registered for private lessons also receive weekly classes in Musicianship Skills, per their choice.
