Individual lessons are ranging from 30, 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the skill, understanding and concentration level of each student.
We offer individual one-on-one lessons for students age 3 and up in all major orchestral instruments. We believe by children having individual lessons, teachers are able to pay more attention to each student, and it’s a more productive setting then group sessions.
Tuesday-Thursday: 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Saturday & Sunday: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM; Monday/Friday: Closed
