NMSM offers private lessons on virtually all instruments and voice year-round designed to fit each student’s learning style and musical goals. Lessons are scheduled once a week, Monday through Saturday, at your convenience, for 30, 45, or 60 minutes. Students can begin lessons at any time of the year, with no prior experience required. Semi-private lessons are available for family members and friends who share the same passion for music. Busy adults may be interested in our "flex-plan" which offers the most flexible scheduling options. NMSM provides many opportunities for students to participate in studio classes, recitals, assessments, competitions, masterclasses with world-class artists, and national and international festivals and summer programs. Children and adults are welcome, but not obligated, to participate in any of these events.
