PRIVATE LESSONS

Thanks so much for choosing PCM! We are so excited to have you as a part of the PCM family.

PCM offers a wide range of group classes and private lessons for all different kinds of instruments for all ages, abilities and financial levels.

Private lessons start at $40 for 30 minute lessons, $55 for 45 minute lessons and $70 for hour-long lessons. We operate on a semester basis with the idea that regularly weekly lessons are the most productive and beneficial way to learn an instrument. We bill by semester, not by individual lesson, and can prorate the cost if you start your lessons after the semester begins.

We also offer financial aid for those looking to bring down the cost. Apply today!

If you have a kid just begging to start violin lessons, are a seasoned guitar player trying to pick up some new skills, are newly retired and trying to get back into playing the cello or have any other kinds of musical needs, PCM is the place for you.
