Priv​ate Lessons

Students! Parents! Click here for great practice tips!

Mastering an instrument is both a discipline and mode of self-expression.  Lessons relax you, improve focus and allow you to accomplish great things in sequential steps. The best way to learn an instrument is with a supportive and encouraging teacher, where students advance at their own pace in one-on-one instruction.

Apple Tree Arts teachers offer lessons to students starting at age 8 - adult in the following instruments: Piano, violin & fiddle, cello, guitar, ukulele, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, tuba, harp, and recorder.  Private voice lessons are best started no younger than age 12. Private violin lessons for ages 4 and older may also be available.

Teachers and days/times vary; please call the office to schedule. If you already have your day/time confirmed, you may register online (for the full semester only) using the "Private Lessons" link on the menu at the left. Please call the office to register if you are joining partway through the semester. Private lesson payment is prorated for the student who begins after the semester has started.

Some teachers may recommend adult and/or advanced students to complete a longer lesson. Lessons are available in 30, 45, and 60 minute weekly sessions.

Please call the office for scheduling and registration for all ages and instruments.

Musicians benefit tremendously from playing with others in small group ensembles, as they must attend both to their own part and parts played by others.

Apple Tree Arts offers ensemble-playing opportunities for intermediate and advanced players from middle school to adult. Choose from the menu on the left.

We're always open to new ideas, so call us if some other ensemble group interests you!
