"Some people think music education is a privilege, but I think it's essential to being human."
- Jewel - singer, songwriter and instrumentalist
At The Conservatory we believe music education is not just for a privileged few but rather for anyone who desires to connect with music. Throughout our 30-year history there have been numerous studies released about the empirical evidence that music education benefits everyone. Our lives become well rounded when music enriches our cognitive and analytical thinking, physical and mental health, and social and emotional well-being.
By taking lessons at The Conservatory, you join a music community that is supportive and engaging. Find out today how music can make a difference for you!

Group Music Classes
Learning music in a group setting can be motivating and fun for young or beginner students. Group classes provide an opportunity to try out an instrument and learn about basic musical concepts before starting private lessons.
This ensemble based program gives students of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to play in a group setting with other musicians. Beginner through Advanced students receive valuable instruction, experiences, and extra performance opportunities through this unique program. Enrollment is open all year and based on instructor discretion. Space in each ensemble is limited!
