Work One-On-One

One-on-one instruction is offered in both the Individual Lesson Program and the Suzuki Program.

Individual Lesson Program

One-on-one instruction is one of the most transformative ways to learn to play or sing. In weekly lessons, your teacher gets to know you and can give you the personalized feedback, encouragement and inspiration to help you make beautiful music. The Individual Lesson Program starts with the lesson, but it also includes performances, supplemental classes, and more.

Suzuki Program

More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent involvement, loving encouragement, a musical environment, and developing the whole child are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
