Private piano lessons are offered to students with three or more years experience in either group classes or private instruction.
Private lessons during the school year are available weekly and bi-weekly, scheduled for the same time each week, billed monthly, and are available in three lengths:
30 Minutes - $35
45 Minutes - $50
60 Minutes - $65
Lessons can be scheduled to fit the student's summer schedule. Rates are the same.
Primary Areas of Instruction
Classical piano, jazz piano, jazz guitar, composition, music theory and arranging.
Additionally, we offer instruction for the following:
Brass Instruments: French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Cornet, and Flugelhorn
String Instruments: Guitar, Violin and Viola
Woodwind Instruments: Flute, Bassoon, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Bass Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone, Oboe, and Piccolo
We focus on developing technique through body awareness and etudes, the study of piano repertoire in varied styles, music theory, and aural training. Students are encouraged to learn improvisation techniques, as well as composing their own music.
Students will have the opportunity to attend and perform in group master classes three times a year. These master classes will provide an intimate and educational setting for students to play in front of their peers and receive feedback from faculty and graduate students from the University of Oregon. Please refer to the private lesson policy for more information.
If interested, please contact the Academy to schedule an interview/audition (at no cost) to evaluate and determine placement. If the student is in need of reviewing or acquiring fundamental skills, it may be recommended that the student join one of our group classes before entering the private studio.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!
