Private Music Lessons

MCA offers private music lessons for all ages and at any level of their musical journey. Students will learn to be better musicians by working on posture, technique, expression, self-evaluation, and music literacy. Dependent on student interest the following styles may be taught: classical, traditional/folk and contemporary (jazz and musical theatre) repertoire. Students will be expected to purchase method books the instructor feels best address the student’s needs. Year-round open registration is accepted for private lessons and lessons are arranged between student/family and the instructor. Lessons are held in MCA’s Recital Hall which features a baby grand piano and in 4 music practice rooms.

Twice annually MCA holds music division concerts, an opportunity for private lesson students to perform. Additionally other performance opportunities throughout the community may be available for other interested students.

I like our piano teacher’s enthusiasm. I appreciate that you offer dance classes which do not require girls to dress in immodest clothing.

Parent of MCA Music & Dance Students

I just wanted to write and say thanks for the wonderful experience you gave my son, at camp this week.  He consistently came home happy, I heard that he really enjoyed his performance today, and he shed tears today when he realized that the camp was over.  Thank you for showing him a good time and teaching him about music and dance.  He really enjoyed himself.  Thanks for all your hard work!
