Mastering an instrument is both a discipline and mode of self-expression.  Lessons relax you, improve focus and allow you to accomplish great things in sequential steps. The best way to learn an instrument is with a supportive and encouraging teacher, where students advance at their own pace in one-on-one instruction.

Apple Tree Arts teachers offer lessons to students starting at age 8 - adult in the following instruments: Piano, violin, cello, guitar, ukulele, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and tuba.  Private voice lessons are best started no younger than age 12, but we do offer a voice class for these younger voice students. Private violin lessons for ages 4 and older may also be available.

Teachers and days/times vary; please log in to our registration system here to search for availability. Private lesson payment is prorated for the student who begins after the semester has started.

Some teachers may recommend adult and/or advanced students to complete a longer lesson. Lessons are available in 30, 45, and 60 minute weekly sessions.

FALL 2018: In an effort to simplify enrollment of private lessons, we will now be enrolling Private Lessons for the whole school year (Sept - June), rather than the semester. 

CURRENT/SPRING SEMESTER STUDENTS: If you would like to reserve your student's current lesson day, time and teacher for next year, please register online by July 31, 2018. We are asking for a deposit of $161 at the time of enrollment.

On August 1, any private lesson times that have not been reserved with a deposit will be opened up for enrollment. Only after August 1 will you be able to change your day/time/teacher.

In order to guarantee that slot for next year, we are asking that you please pay a deposit of $161, which is one months's tuition, $126, plus the $35 annual registration fee.

NEW STUDENTS AND/OR CURRENT ONES LOOKING TO CHANGE THEIR DAY/TIME: All remaining lesson times will be open to the public as of August 1, 2018.

Musicians benefit tremendously from playing with others in small group ensembles, as they must attend both to their own part and parts played by others.

Apple Tree Arts offers ensemble-playing opportunities for intermediate and advanced players from middle school to adult. We currently offer a Jam Band, an adult flute choir and a community chorus!

We're always open to new ideas, so call us if some other ensemble group interests you!
