Private Music Lessons

IMPORTANT

Rutgers University has approved the return of Rutgers Community Arts programs to campus for the fall 2021 semester!

Masking and social distancing is required of the full RCA community, including students, parents, faculty, and staff. In-person office visits are currently by appointment only. Please call or email us to be added to the Rutgers visitor log ahead of your appointment. Thank you for your patience and continued support of the arts through this unprecedented time.

Registration is now open for classes and private lessons, both online and in-person.

Note: Voice and wind instrument students do not have an in-person option at this time.

Private music instruction is available for students of all ages and stages, starting at just 4 years old. Individual instruction with our faculty of world-class, conservatory-trained musicians is available in 30-, 45-, and 60-minute sessions in all instruments and voice.

Many of the classical music faculty of Rutgers Community Arts utilize The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program (RCMDP) or Associated Boards of Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) syllabi. Students are encouraged to discuss these curricula with instructors and consider participating in RCMDP or ABRSM examinations, as they provide a truly outstanding means of focusing your efforts on achievable and sustainable progress.

Each student’s musical and personal needs are taken into consideration during the placement process, as student needs and instructor teaching styles vary considerably. To facilitate the best possible lesson placement, all new students and students changing instructors must schedule a paid 30-, 45-, or 60-minute trial lesson.

Students may register for lessons at any time during the fall or spring semester. Once registered, students commit to weekly lessons for the remainder of the semester. Summer lessons are available a la carte.

To request placement in our private lesson program, new students should submit a Private Lesson Inquiry Form. Our office will respond to requests via phone and/or email within two (2) business days. Please contact us with questions or to learn more about our private lesson options.
