Private lessons in music and speech arts

Learn a new instrument, find your voice, build confidence on stage or hone your existing artistic skill set with private lessons taught by highly qualified instructors.

Private lessons are available in music, speech arts and drama for all ages and levels of development. Taught by highly qualified professionals and performers with extensive experience, learn new skills and build upon your existing artistic knowledge in a focused learning environment.

Whether you’re a beginner, looking to play for fun or are serious about pursuing a musical career, the Conservatory’s private lessons have something for everyone!

When choosing a private lesson, you will need to consider:

  • number of lessons
  • length of lesson
  • what time of day you prefer
  • which day of the week you prefer

The average instruction per term (fall, winter or summer) is 16 to 18 hours. Instructor rates range from $69 to $110 per hour and rates vary depending on the duration of lesson. Lessons shorter than 1 hour are available.

Online lessons are available provided there is an instructor with room in their studio schedule.
