Music instruction at The Music Settlement provides a basis for a lifetime of learning and musical enjoyment. Enrolling in private or group lessons, playing in an ensemble, or participating in a music history and literature course provides options for various levels of involvement. Music instruction is available Monday through Saturday - see what interests you!

How much do private lessons cost?

Private lessons start at $31 per half hour. This could be more, depending upon the instrument, instructor, or pedagogy (for example, Suzuki private lessons cost more). For those who want to take voice lessons, there may be an extra accompanist fee.

Can I pay for lessons on a weekly basis?

When you register for private lessons, you are committing to the current school year. A registration fee and down payment are required at enrollment with remaining tuition billed monthly. However, you can discontinue during the school year by submitting four weeks written notice to the business office. You can also purchase up to three trial lessons with a teacher before registering for the entire school year.

Do you offer lessons and programs for older, beginning adults?

Yes! We take students of all ages and abilities. So long as you are interested, we are happy to welcome you!

What instruments and styles are taught at The Music Settlement?

We offer private instruction across a variety of instrumental styles. From violin to percussion, we offer something for any age and any ability level.

The Music Settlement has been, and continues to be, an anchor for my family.
