Our goal is that music-making becomes a fun and cherished part of everyday life. Students of any age and ability are encouraged to experiment with different instruments, instructors, musical styles and other music-related subjects. Students are never required to perform in front of others, but may elect to share their learning during term-end recitals. Currently, private lessons are offered as listed below. If you don’t see your instrument of choice, give us a call—we add new instructors and instruments continually and make every effort to fill requests. All Shedd Institute instructors meet high performance, teaching, and ethical standards.
Private Lessons. Private lessons may be started at any time and are ongoing, throughout the year. Generally lessons are scheduled weekly and range from ½, ¾ to 1 hour in length. Rates depend on the instructor and range from $19 to $27 per ½ hour. Tuition is payable by the lesson, autopay, or monthly in advance
Semi-Private Lessons. Bring a friend or family member and have fun in music lessons together! This is a great opportunity for siblings and parents to learn an instrument together. Semi-private lessons can be arranged for 2-4 students, are tailored to fit your needs, and are structured similar to private lessons: ½, ¾ and 1 hour. A sliding rate scale based upon the size of the group makes this an affordable alternative to private lessons..
