Group Classes

Group classes are fun and a great way to learn your instrument!  Here are some of the benefits of learning in a group:
Learn with and from peers at your level
More questions are addressed, more sharing of information
Skill Reinforcement
Fun and social environment
Less costly than private lessons
Group classes are only $12 per class and are continuing.  Makeup classes are not available.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great option and offer:
Individual attention
Move at your own pace
More flexibility in scheduling

Private lessons meet for a 1/2 hour lesson once weekly; the cost is $20 per lesson.

Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-private lessons are for two people – sometimes a parent and child, or two friends/classmates.

A fun option with benefits of both group classes and private lessons.

Semi-private lessons meet for a 1/2 hour lesson once weekly; the cost is $15 per lesson per student.

We also offer instruction books so you can learn on your own. Ted wrote these books (with Wayne Erbsen) to get his teaching materials in an easy to use format so anyone can learn, anywhere.
