  • The Exploratory Program

Sometimes you or your youngster are not sure what instrument works for you and  just want to have a moment to explore the options.  We offer a unique opportunity to spend an hour with a qualified instructor who can test  you or your youngster on a handful of different instruments.  The cost for this one hour program is $ 80.00.  The intent of this program is to bring focus and energy to the student and the instrument they choose.  Upon completion of this program we can continue the discussion of formal private instruction and/or group instruction, and obtaining your instrument to prepare you.

  • Casual Instruction Program

Other times you just want to explore what private instruction is all about on an instrument/or music topic.  We offer a casual drop in program for you.  The cost for casual instruction is $ 40.00 per half hour session.  Subject to Availability.  This program requires you to have an instrument to be practiced on.
