Private Lessons

Music is a universal language. It can transport us; help us relive special moments; and make us healthier, happier and more connected as family, friends, and as part of a larger community.

Private, 1:1 instruction provides a great opportunity to learn to play an instrument or to continue building on existing knowledge and skill. Over time, private music education develops patience, commitment, perseverance, logical thinking, goal-setting, time management, increased confidence and self-esteem.
