Private Lessons

Private Lessons

Study one-on-one with our world-class, accredited faculty. Individualized instrumental and vocal instruction is tailored to each student’s learning style and musical goals. 

Lessons are offered in-person and online from September to June during the school year (32 weeks), and during the summer – you may sign up at any time. 

Complete our New Student Inquiry Form to get started with one-on-one instruction with a world-class Conservatory teacher in weekly private lessons. Beginners to advanced students of all ages can learn and excel at their instrument or voice and be a part of a musical community like no other. We offer flexible options for onsite and online instruction.


Elementary school students are just starting to explore their musical personalities, abilities and preferences. We’ll guide you on choosing the right instrument and teacher, and how to maximize your student’s musical success. Students as young as 4 years of age can begin private lessons in piano, guitar, and in our Suzuki Program. All other instruments can begin in 2nd grade pending evaluation. 

Teens will find no better place than the Conservatory to hone instrumental skills and achieve musical goals. Not only will they develop their instrumental skills, but MCW students have the opportunity to develop a stronger sense of self, leadership, and volunteerism by being a part of our greater musical community. 

Adults of every age will find a warm welcome at the Conservatory, whether dusting off that high school instrument or trying something new. Become a part of our musical community and make new friends while enjoying new experiences.
