Click below to send us an inquiry form. We will contact you within two days to discuss your placement in private lessons. Because of the nature of private lessons and the varied abilities of our students, we must place all new students individually. This is to ensure your success in the study of the instrument of your choice. If you are a returning student, kindly fill out the inquiry form and you will be able to continue studying with the same instructor, if that is your desire.

Please note that an annual registration fee of $75 applies at the time of enrollment. In addition to providing performance and testing opportunities, this annual school fee qualifies students for participation in many of our Music Matters after-school ensembles at no additional cost.
