Adult Private Music Lessons: 18-99+
Children's Private Singing Lessons: Children ages 10 and up are accepted for private lessons. Exceptions are made for children as young as six years of age if they are currently enrolled in a local children's choir. Their vocal chords of children younger than 10 are growing and developing and due to the risk injury, we don't recommend children younger than 10 years of age taking private lessons.
5 years of age and under: We will be offering age appropriate group lessons in early music development. These group lessons will develop a music appreciation and understanding that will serve them well when they get older and are ready for more serious study.
Music is an essential part of a well-rounded education and crucial for brain development for young and old.
Studies consistently show that children who learn to play an instrument develop stronger math and language skills than those who don't.
Children who enjoy playing an instrument are also happier, more confident and more creative throughout their life.
Music education is a gift that your children will cherish forever.

We'll use this time to get a feel for the relationship and see if the instructor-student fit is right for you. If it isn't you can ask for another teacher and that first lesson is free also. Your first lesson with each teacher is free until you find one you like.
