Private Music Lessons

Private music lessons are the best way to learn a musical instrument. Music Notes Academy students learn music reading and notation, theory, instrument techniques, performance techniques, standard repertoire and songs. We utilize proven music curricular methods that provide students with structure and flexibility.

We teach beginner students, experienced students, adults, transfer students from other music schools and private teachers. Each student receives specially designed, comprehensive lessons based around their ability and goals. At Music Notes Academy, we are committed to the musical growth and development of each student.

For students interested in performing as a group, we enjoy creating ensembles, bands and performance classes.
