Piano duoThe Academy offers private lesson instruction in nearly every musical discipline including piano, violin, cello, string bass, flute, saxophone, clarinet, oboe, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, voice, guitar and percussion. Private lessons are offered in weekly private sessions of 30, 45 and 60 minutes. Students may choose their desired lesson length, or may consult their instructor to determine the lesson length appropriate for their study.

Students are placed with instructors based on their personal objectives for pursuing musical study. Each student's individual experience is of utmost importance to the Academy of Music, and we believe the experience begins with each student's relationship with their instructor and a common understanding of goals and preferences.
