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 $45 for 30 minute lessons, $60 for 45 minute lessons and $75 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.

Ready to get started?

SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS

PCM also offers semi-private lessons for groups of two to three students for those who thrive in small group settings or are trying to help bring down the cost of individual lessons. Semi-private lessons are priced at 2/3 of the tuition of private lessons –  $30 for 30 minute lessons, $40 for 45 minute lessons and $50 for hour-long lessons – billed by semester.

If this is of interest to you, please fill out our new student interest form above for each student and note that you are looking for semi-private lessons! Semi-private groups must be arranged by the students, PCM does not find and match students with each other to participate in this educational experience.
