Private Lessons in Instruments, Voice, Theory and Composition
Private instruction promotes the growth of skills needed in learning to play an instrument, develop a beautiful singing voice, or compose music. The Preparatory Center works with the registrant to make a successful match between student and teacher. Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of total beginners as well as advanced performers. Students may begin lessons at any time during the calendar year, subject to teacher availability. Weekly recitals held throughout the year provide students with the opportunity to work toward goals and increase confidence (30, 45 or 60 minutes weekly).
Adults may register for private instruction for the full school year or for five lessons at a time. In the summer, adults may register for a minimum of four lessons. 30 minute classes are $50 each, 45 minute classes are $60 each, and 60 minute classes are $70 each. Contact the Prep Center Office for more information.
