Private Lessons

PRIVATE LESSONS

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced player, private music lessons is the most productive way to advance your musical abilities on your instrument. At RCSM you have the opportunity to study with professional performers and educators who are respected locally, nationally, and internationally. Our instructors dedicate time out of their rigorous touring schedules to ensure that you receive a customized rigorous private lesson curriculum to assists you with your personal goals while highlighting your musical preferences.

RCSM offers private music lessons on all contemporary instruments (i.e. pop, rock, jazz, etc.) & most orchestral instruments (*see below for minimum age requirements). We push every student to work towards the highest levels of proficiency on their instrument and to explore ALL of the musical outlets that inspire them regardless of genre or style. We understand that the connection you have with your instrument is a very personal thing and that how you make music with it should be a clear expression of YOU! We feel that is the most effective way to help you fall in love with your instrument and to help you learn more masterful ways to express with your instrument. 

Every student that registers for private music lessons at RCSM has an opportunity to participate in I’m In The Band!
