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 in the following instruments: piano, flute, clarinet, saxophone, guitar, violin, viola, cello, ukulele, trumpet, trombone, tuba, euphonium, voice.

 Lessons are available for all ages. Please call the office if you have any questions about your child’s readiness for lessons.

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.

Lessons are available in 30, 45, and 60 minute weekly sessions.
