Excel in your Musical Journey THROUGH PRIVATE LESSONS WITH THE DAY SCHOOL OF THE ARTS

The Day School of the Arts provides excellence in music education for all students, regardless of playing ability, background, or learning style. When a student begins with the Day School of the Arts we evaluate their abilities, the ways they excel, and where they might find challenges as a musician. Our goal is to support each student from where they are.

Private instruction helps a student develop their natural talents. One-on-one lessons focus on the core principles of playing an instrument and allow the student to receive immediate feedback, corrections, assurances, and practice tips from a professional music educator.

We encourage students to bring the music they are currently working on to help our instructor understand the level of playing ability. After you finalize your trial lesson, you’ll meet with our lesson coordinator to decide if the instructor is a good fit for your student. If it’s a good fit, we will schedule weekly lessons. If it’s not a good fit we can look at other instructor options that may have a different approach that will better support your student. 
  3. Welcome to the Day School of the Arts! You are now a full studio member and will continue to work with your instructor each week. We can’t wait to see how you progress as you develop technique, sound quality, and work on music for performances, recitals, and auditions.
