We know what a big step starting private instruction can be for a student. We’re here to help make that step meaningful, rewarding and long lasting. The more information we have about interests, goals, previous experience and expectations, the better we’ll be at personally placing you or your child with one of our fine instructors.
Individual music instruction is available in piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, guitar, bass guitar, lute, flute, oboe, composition, music theory and recording engineering.
For instruments not currently taught at our facility, we do maintain a list of referrals so please feel free to call us for a recommendation.

We understand that the student-teacher relationship is an important bond for the success of lessons and we match students and teachers according to the student’s age, musical interests and experience, as well as according to time frame requests.
30-minute lessons are $22, 45-minute lessons are $33, and 60-minute lessons are $44. The Armstrong Community Music School has a one-time $30 registration fee per family. This charge covers all of our programs and is valid for an entire household.
