A good student-teacher relationship is essential, so students are individually placed with a teacher based on learning style, experience, and musical interests. Our distinguished faculty members are dedicated to providing engaging and personalized musical mentorship for each student. In addition, private lesson students have the opportunity to perform in recitals and salons as well as participate in exclusive departmental events, Dynamic Duos, evaluations, workshops, and masterclasses. Private lessons also include written progress reports from faculty and end-of-year parent/teacher phone conferences.
