Individual Lessons

Individual lessons are a way for students to engage in private one-on-one lessons with one of our 20 faculty members, who specializes in instruments and voice such instruments including brass, fretted instruments, jazz, keyboard, percussion, strings, and woodwinds. Students will develop fundamentals on technique, performance, theory, and repertoire. Students may select from trial packages (4 lessons), full semester packages (14 lessons), and multiple packages (8 or 12 lessons) ranging from 30, 45, and 60 minutes. Price varies depending on the number of lessons.

For younger students, 8 years old and under, lessons can be bundled with the Suzuki Program. And for students in elementary and middle schools, lessons can be bundled with the Saturday Music Program.

Individual lesson registrations are on a rolling basis and schedules run January 22 through May 4 and locations of lessons vary at Main Campus, Fishkill, and Online.
