Private Lessons

Private lessons are the heart of the Community Music Program’s mission. Developing the skills necessary to master an instrument or the voice successfully, in a manner focused upon fostering meaningful growth and satisfaction, is best accomplished in this one-on-one weekly meeting of the student and the teacher. All of the teachers in the CMP are highly trained and accomplished professionals who remain active in their respective fields as performers, scholars, clinicians,  adjudicators and pedagogues. Our years of practice enable us to offer superior musical expertise to the Rochester–area community. It is based upon the recognition of–and an empathy for–the needs of students of all ages: musical, technical and emotional. While not necessarily required of the student, performance is encouraged as a goal. It is an opportunity to take one’s study to a level of achievement far beyond that of weekly lesson preparation.

For new students: Upon receipt of a completed registration form and the registration fee, the Division Coordinator will consult with the prospective student/parent in order to arrange for an appropriate choice of teacher. The instructor, once notified, will then contact the new student to confirm the lesson schedule. Please note: tuition payment for the term must be made prior to the beginning of instruction.
