Your Journey in Music Starts Right Now

Music lessons teach more than just tunes! Numerous studies have shown that participation in music programs has an extremely positive impact on cognitive and social skills. Music facilitates learning, instills respect and pride, and increases self-esteem and social interaction.

Registration for private lessons is available anytime of the year! It is never too late to learn music. Whether you are an adult who has never touched an instrument or you are looking for lessons for your child, you are starting the first step in your musical journey! The staff and instructors at the Conservatory of Performing Arts are excited to share the gift of music with you.

We have special summer virtual programming available in July and August 2021. We are offering two opportunities for current students and the general public to learn about our instructors and studios:

  1. Summer Workshop Series with Private Lesson Instructors. Take part in short one to two hour evening workshops with our private lesson instructors in a topic of their interest. Some will be lectures and others more participatory. We have options available for the whole family! Check our Special Events > Workshops section for details.
  2. Summer Private Lesson Instructor Mini Concert Series. We have some of the best music instructors in the city and we want to share their passion for music. Join these Saturday afternoon concerts to see what your private lesson instructor is learning or simply join us to learn more about repertoire like classical music, French music in the 1920's, music Jane Austen listened to, celtic harp music, and more! All concerts will include a question and answer period at the end; interact with the performers live! Check our Special Events > Performances & Events section for details.
