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.
