Music lessons help children build confidence and communication skills, develop focused listening skills and foster creativity. Neural paths in the brain are developed that might never be established otherwise. Adults can improve or learn new skills and keep their brains active in a new way. Research also seems to indicate that when the elderly take music lessons, anxiety and depression are reduced. It is rarely too early and never too late to begin. Music is good for every age, and we accept students at any point in the semester!
Private instruction is available for students of all ages and ability levels in piano, voice, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, and most band and orchestral instruments. Tuition costs depend upon the level or type of instruction you or your family member prefer. Students receive a weekly lesson (30, 45 or 60 minutes). Our instructors are professionally trained in the technique and repertoire of their instrument. Recital performance is available at the end of each semester with the approval of the instructor. A list of instructors is available on our "Instructors" link.
Suzuki Violin is an excellent option for the younger child. Children learn music just as they learn their own language, through listening, encouragement, and repetition in practice. Openings available Monday, day or evening; for children ages 4 and up. Instructor: Katherine Williamson
