Group music lessons present the unique opportunity for students to learn a new instrument in a setting that is both engaging and instructive. Students can learn the basics of music theory while building foundational playing skills. Group lessons are ideal for those students who excel in peer-motivated environments with the chance for both individual and ensemble performance.

Students can participate in these group lessons:

Payments may be made in full or in monthly installments for an additional $20 fee (per family per semester except for full year registrations). Monthly invoices will be sent by e-mail.
Please Payment from Program Policies for additional payment policies.


Family discount: Families registering three or more students or registering for lessons on three or more instruments/groups/ensembles during the same transaction will receive a 10 percent discount off the family’s total tuition for the semester.
