Private lessons are available for piano, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and voice for
beginning through advanced students from school age through adults. Enrollment is open
to interested students, regardless of age or ability.
Lessons are available in 30-, 45-, and 60-minute lengths, with 31 lessons per academic
year and 1 studio class. As part of the youth private instruction program, registered students
are offered performance opportunities as detailed on the next page. Careful consideration
is given to match students with the appropriate instructor. First-time students are required
to interview with the Executive Director prior to registration. At that time, students learn
about the Conservatory’s philosophy and special offerings, and the Executive Director will
recommend a teacher and schedule a lesson time.
Students enrolled in private lessons are encouraged to participate in chamber ensembles,
classes, and performance opportunities. For piano instruction, a piano or electronic keyboard
at home is required for enrollment.
