Private Lessons

Private Lessons - Community Music School

Develop a lifelong passion for music! The Community Music School offers private music instruction in a variety of instruments and subjects. Scroll down to see all our instruments, subjects, and faculty.

Through March 31, new students are still being accepted for Spring private lessons! Lessons should be completed by April 30. Please note that lesson availability depends on remaining space in teachers' schedules, so there may be a delay in matching you with a teacher. 

Lessons can be 30, 45, or 60 minutes long. Students and teachers will determine a mutually available lesson time within Mon-Thu 4:00-8:00 or Fri 4:00-6:00 before completing registration. Please note the parking information in case parking costs affect your preference of lesson time. See below for prices, which depend on the teacher's experience level. 

New student or looking for a new teacher? Fill out the Private Lesson Inquiry Form, a great first step to help us match you with a teacher who suits your schedule and interests! New students can join until March 31. 

  • Private lessons can be held in person at the Broyhill Music Center in Boone, NC or online from any location.
