Discover, improvise and play!

Our instrumental program offers students ages 5 and older the opportunity to learn the joy of playing a musical instrument while studying with highly skilled, professional musicians. Students can learn in a variety of formats including group classes, partner lessons, and private lessons. Instructors focus on technique, sight-reading, and music theory while encouraging students to discover their unique styles, interests and ability to improvise.
