-Hour Long Private Lessons: 30 minute one-on-one lessons with an extraordinary teacher!
-Half Hour Long Private Lessons: Hour long one-on-one lessons with an extraordinary teacher! Great for students that are seriously pursuing music, or feel that they need some extra time with the teacher. Our teachers love hour long lessons because they feel they can help the most in this setting.
-Semi-Private Lessons: Group setting lessons where students can learn together on the same instrument. Several options exist within this category from two students learning with one teacher to five students learning at once.
-Music Appreciation Class: Bring your children (ages 1-3) or (ages 4-6) in to learn music fundamentals in a group setting! Children create music using Boomwhackers, bells, auxiliary percussion instruments and their own voices. We encourage the kids to learn rhythms and music through dance and actual instrumental experience. More advanced classes can learn on recorder, piano or ukulele!
