Conservatory of Music & Dance

Private Lessons

The Conservatory offers private music and dance instruction for a wide range of interests, levels and ages. Lessons are taught individually and student-teacher matching can be arranged through the Conservatory Office. Registration is ongoing throughout the year, based on instructor availability.

Lessons are held on a weekly basis as recommended by the instructor and can vary from 30, 45, or 60 minutes. All students wishing to begin private studies will be interviewed by an instructor.

Music instruction is available for the following instruments:

  • brass
  • guitar
  • percussion
  • piano
  • strings
  • voice
  • woodwind

Music students interested in private lessons should connect with the instructor of their instrument of choice. Please visit our online directory to locate instructor contact information. Additional questions should be directed to the conservatory office at 403.529.3880.

Beginning in September 2018, the tuition fee charged for private studio instruction is $50 per hour, or $25 per half-hour.
