Ages 6 & older
NEW! Year-long program
Private lessons are the foundation of a musical education, providing the concentrated work and individual attention needed to develop a student's skills and enthusiasm.
We offer private lessons for violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano, flute, clarinet, guitar, and composition. For ages 3 and up, also see Suzuki Strings.
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!)
Crowden has a limited number of openings for new students each year, and placement is subject to teacher availability. Students who are interested in private lessons start by scheduling a placement interview, during which Crowden staff evaluate the student’s readiness. Following the interview, students are matched with a teacher based on playing level, learning style, and schedule.
Weekly lessons are scheduled by mutual arrangement (within Crowden calendar).
Private lesson tuition includes weekly lessons and free opportunities to participate in Crowden student recitals. Additionally, private lesson students are encouraged to participate in Crowden’s ensemble programs to reinforce and complement the skills learned in their private lessons.
Tuition is listed for a full academic year (34 lessons from September 7 through May 31). Installment payment plans are available
- 30 minutes: $1,496
- 45 minutes: $2,244
- 60 minutes: $2,992
How to Enroll
