Private Lessons

Direct attention drives results. 

Our teachers come from all walks of life, brought together by a passion for playing. They are classical and jazz artists, influencers, session players, soloists, and rockers who understand where you’re coming from and where you want to go. We offer private lessons in over 35 instruments and voice, all conveniently scheduled to meet your needs.

Our 4-lesson introductory package helps you ease into the process and helps us feel confident that we’ve matched you with the perfect mentor.


Be inspired together.

Feed your fire for music with a fun, interactive class at Groton Hill. All our classes for teenagers are focused on specific, achievable skills to keep you motivated and learning throughout the session.

Rising to the challenge. 

Playing well together requires patience, practice, and persistence. Our diverse ensembles are led by faculty whose passion brings life to every rehearsal, with holistic educational goals to help develop students’ confidence and skills.
