Private Lessons

 

Private lessons provide 30, 45, or 60-minutes of instruction designed to nurture individual talent, provide students the opportunity to learn practice skills, develop technical skill, improve musicianship, and gain repertoire knowledge and appreciation.

In addition to the ten private lessons included in the tuition fee, students will have the opportunity to perform in a recital as well as for master classes with University of Maryland faculty. Dress rehearsals will be held the week before the recitals.

 

*Lessons with University of Maryland faculty members may require an audition. Please email for more information on teacher selection and availability
