Piano Partner Lessons - Partner lessons combine the best of group classes and private lessons.  The instructor can still cater to the students’ learning styles and interests, but with the added motivation and social aspect of having a musical partner with whom to practice and learn.  Partner lessons are one hour to allow time for playing duets and individual instruction time with each student.  This is also an excellent way for parents to learn alongside their children!  Partners must sign up together, and will meet with the instructor prior to the first lesson.  Lessons are scheduled with the instructor at a mutually convenient time.
 
Private lessons (piano) - Private piano lessons are available for students who are completely new to the piano, those who have completed three years of Keyboard class and wish to continue their studies, those who are currently enrolled in Keyboard class and need extra help or enrichment, or students for whom the group format does not best serve their learning needs.  All students must have a piano (acoustic or digital) at home on which they can practice.  A one-on-one interview with the instructor to assess readiness, goals, and learning style will take place prior to the first lesson.  Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis with the instructor at a mutually convenient time.
 
Private lessons (harp) - Harp lessons are available on both pedal (orchestral) harps and lever (Celtic) harps.  Lessons focus on technique and repertoire development, and will also include aspects of music theory, ear training, harp maintenance, sight reading, and music history.  It is strongly recommended that students have a basic knowledge of music notation before beginning lessons.  All students must have a harp at home on which they can practice.  A limited number of rental harps are available from the studio ($15/month).  A one-on-one interview with the instructor will take place prior to the first lesson to assess readiness, goals, and learning style, and to discuss the logistics of acquiring a harp.

Private lessons (voice) - Are you interested in singing classical, broadway, jazz, folk, pop, or rock?  Sign up today to start voice lessons! Students will learn a healthy, classical technique, which can be applied to all styles of music and will make them versatile singers. Lessons are available for students age 6 through adults.  A one-on-one interview with the instructor to assess readiness, goals, and learning style will take place prior to the first lesson.  Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis with the instructor at a mutually convenient time.
