What is the difference between Private Lessons and Group Lessons, and which one should my child register for?

Private lessons are fee-based, one-on-one lesson times with an instructor. They can move at a child's own pace and give the opportunity for focused, individual attention.

Group lessons are available at no charge and cannot be as individualized as private lessons. A more social experience, they provide students the ability to practice playing their instrument in a group setting. Group lessons are for violin, viola and cello, and typically offered to Lower School students only.

Can my child take both Private and Group Strings Lessons?

Yes, definitely! Just be sure to indicate on each registration form that the child will be taking both so that scheduling can be done appropriately.

Why are there separate registration forms for Private and Group lessons?

The two programs are administered through two different offices. Private lessons are fee-based and available for multiple instruments & voice. Group lessons are not fee-based and available for strings only.
