Private music lessons are a great way to boost your child's confidence. Even skilled musicians benefit from private lessons. If you are looking to learn a new instrument, we have skilled instructors who take the time to teach theory and technic as well as learning the instrument. One on one attention affords individuals to focus on areas that need improvement. Lessons provide the opportunity to practice and teach the value of persistence and discipline.
Since June 14th, 2020, the following precautions are being taken by our staff of instructors, and we ask the individuals coming to the studio for lessons to do the same. This applies to the person providing transportation for the musician as well as the musician.
Masks are now required in the state of Indiana. Your instructor will also be wearing a mask.
We have also taken the precautions of having hand sanitizer available in every room, as well as sinks in the entry and classroom.
