Adult Music Education Initiative

The Adult Music Education Initiative aims to support adults who are interested in individual music lessons, ensemble classes, and chamber music classes. Beginners thru professional musicians will find a supportive environment for developing proficiency and confidence on their chosen instrument.

Music Lessons and Classes

Individual instruction for beginning through advanced students is offered for the following instruments: piano, voice, guitar violin, viola, cello, string bass, flute, piccolo, and ukulele. Adult students may enroll in lessons of 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length for the full year or on a per semester basis.

We offer 2 schedules for adult students:

Standard Monthly Schedule

This schedule is for students that know they can commit to a structured and consistent schedule for music lessons and classes.

Flex-Schedule

This schedule is for students that travel a lot and know that they will not be able to come every week.  Flex-Schedule is only for private lesson students and our university style strings group classes.

 

In addition to individual lessons, NCA offers the following adult ensembles:

Adult Choir

The Adult Choir will  work on short programs with a wide variety of music.  We will tackle some classical, folk and popular music. The conductor hopes to improve participants vocal quality as wells as provide a musical challenge.  Lessons will be conducted with all voice parts present. It is expected that participants will take time between sessions to practice and learn parts already covered.
