Private Lessons

Crowden offers private instrumental lessons for all ages and levels of ability.

We offer private lessons for violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano, flute, clarinet, guitar, and composition.

Crowden’s private lesson faculty members are selected from among the area’s finest musicians and music educators to provide a focused, supportive, and well-rounded musical education for every ability level. (See our faculty roster!)

Students are matched with a teacher following a placement interview with a Crowden staff member, taking into account playing level, personality, and schedule.

Private lesson tuition includes weekly lessons and free opportunities to participate in Crowden student recitals and master classes.

Additionally, private lesson students are encouraged to participate in Crowden’s ensemble programs to reinforce and complement the skills learned in their private lessons.
