Private Instruction

It’s never too late to learn an instrument…

Research suggests that playing an instrument or singing in a choir can enhance emotional well-being, brain health, cognition, and hearing.

At CSMA, experienced music teachers and performers offer lessons for all skill levels. They teach with patience and encouragement and provide practice strategies letting you develop musical skills at your own pace.

Currently, we are offering both virtual and in-person private instruction with many of our talented music educators. If you are already a student with CSMA, please contact your instructor to arrange private lessons. If you wish to be matched with an instructor, please email or fill out the form below.
