Homeschool Music Programs

Whether you using any of the plethora of homeschool educational philosophies, one thing is clear across the any curriculum: music is best taught with a practical hands-on approach. A wonderful way that the National Conservatory of Arts has made it easier to include music in your homeschool studies, is through our Homeschool Music Programs. Our highly distinguished music faculty have earmarked one weekday morning to dedicate to teaching homeschoolers. We offer music classes and lessons, usually on Wednesday mornings, at a discounted tuition rate.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are the cornerstone of a superior music education program. We encourage all students to have at least one instrument that they can dedicate private lessons to. Private Lessons are ideal for quick learners that may go too fast for Partner Lessons and Group Classes. Private Lessons are a mainstay for upper level beginner students, as well as intermediate and advanced musicians. We offer Private Lessons in piano, violin, percussion, drumset, cello, voice, guitar, ukulele, electric guitar, and mandolin.

Monthly Tuition

30-minute Private Lessons $143.60

45-minute Private Lessons $215.40

60-minute Private Lessons $287.04

An average month is 4 weeks. Tuition for months with 3 or 5 weeks will be adjusted accordingly.


Partner Lessons

Partner lessons are private lessons with 2 students. Partner lessons are a fun and efficient way to introduce children and adults to an instrument. This lesson model is ideal for beginner students, or those with little experience on the instrument. We offer Partner Lessons in piano, violin, percussion, drumset, cello, voice, guitar, ukulele, electric guitar, and mandolin.

Group Music Classes

Group Music Classes are the most economic way for beginners to learn a new instrument. It can be a very fun way to start the journey of music - with friends. Group Music Classes are usually 50 minutes and classes follow a style of instruction that focuses on ensemble playing. We offer Group Music Classes in piano, violin, viola, cello, string bass, percussion, drumset, and voice. Group Music Classes must have at least 3 students; classes with less than 3 students will be upgraded to either partner lessons, or private lessons, after 3 weeks of the start of class. Families and friends can also create their own Group Music Class with a custom schedule, if there are 3 participants studying the same instrument.

Monthly Tuition (per student)

50-minute Group Classes $75.00

An average month is 4 weeks. Tuition for months with 3 or 5 weeks will be adjusted accordingly.
