The Community Music School at Southwestern College offers 30-minute or 60-minute individual lessons that will prepare students to express themselves musically and acquire the skills necessary to successfully participate in ensembles, perform in public, and enjoy a lifelong love of music.   

We offer private music lessons for all ages, levels, and abilities as well as group music classes and ensembles.  Students meet for one-on-one weekly sessions with CMS instructors.  Private music lessons are available on piano, violin, viola, cello, percussion, and voice.  Lessons are offered on the Southwestern College campus.

The goals and needs of each student are considered individually when placed with an instructor.
