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 for children and adults in the following instruments: Piano, violin, cello, guitar, ukulele, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and tuba. Private voice lessons are best started no younger than age 11, but we do offer a voice class for these younger voice students. Private violin lessons for ages 4 and older may also be available.
Teachers and days/times vary; please call or email the office to schedule. 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.
