Summer Private Lessons 2024

Flexible Scheduling – During the summer weeks (June 17 – August 30) so that you may conveniently schedule summer music lessons around summer activities.  Want more than one lesson per week to keep busy?  Go for it!  Summer Lessons are flexible and can be scheduled June 17 – August 30 in 4, 6, 8 or 10-week packages.
 
Fun and Motivating – Summer is the perfect time to break from the routine and help the students learn music of their choice whether it be a song they heard on the radio or a challenging classical piece.

Lessons from Anywhere – You don’t have to be in the Boston area for online lessons – you just need a phone, tablet, or laptop to connect to your teacher for lessons.
 
Time for Something New – Many of our students show interest in learning an additional instrument during the school year. Summer is the best time to try out a new instrument or two!

Stay in Shape – Everyone knows that saying, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.” This is true in all disciplines including learning how to play an instrument. Instead of reviewing skills previously learned for the first month or two in the Fall, our students use their summer music lessons to keep making progress.
 

Scheduling

All lessons must be utilized during the summer dates of June 17 – August 30.  Unused lessons are not able to be transferred to future semesters.
