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 $15 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 $25 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 $18 per lesson per student.
