Class Descriptions

For all of our classes our goal is for students to have fun learning a new skill or honing a skill they have been working on. To do this requires all students, group or otherwise, to attend class and practice regularly at home. Learning music is a team effort between teachers, parents, and students. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged as we see the most growth in our students when parents are dedicated to helping students at home. Parents are always welcome in class, to ask questions, and give feedback.

Ages listed in class descriptions are recommendations. We try to make sure every students is placed in the class that best suits their need and ability’s. If you have questions about a specific student please contact the teacher of that particular class.

Not all classes are offered every year due to teacher and location availability. Please check the current calendar to see what we are offering
