Young Artists Programs

Available for brass, percussion, piano, strings, winds, and voice, the Young Artists Programs include opportunities for monthly recitals and celebrations. Note: Suzuki guitar requires eight parent education workshops.  Students taking private lessons for the first time can take a lessons-only program, but are encouraged to add one or more classes or ensembles. After the first year, all private lesson students are required to add one or more classes or ensembles to their program. 

Choose a 30-, 45-, 60-, 75-, 90-, or 120-min. private lesson per week.
(Note: 60, 75, 90, and 120 min options can be divided into two lessons per week. Beginning students in violin, cello and piano are required to take two 30 min lessons per week.)
