“Where words fail, music speaks.”
~Hans Christian Anderson
We offer private lessons in banjo, banjolele, drums, guitar, keyboard, piano, ukulele, violin, and voice. All of our music classes are taught by accomplished, practicing musicians who love teaching.
We are also willing to accommodate your needs and provide a semi-private class in any of the above instruments at half the cost, provided that you find a person to take the class with you or your child. We recognize that semi-private lessons can provide a more affordable option for learning an instrument, as well as an excellent structure for learning rhythm and tempo. We also know that private classes allow students to progress at their own speed and benefit from the one-on-one attention of an instructor, so we leave the choice and the price up to you.
We are also pleased to have a top-notch children & youth choir as part of our academy. Be sure to check out our choir page for more details…
Space is limited in all of our instrumental classes, so be sure to sign up early.
Fall 2017- spring 2018 music classes will run for 28 weeks at Westview Baptist Church. Courses accepting new students later in the year are posted below.
Full year classes will begin the week of September 18th and end by May 6th. There will be no classes from December 18th to January 7th due to Christmas Break. Classes will resume the week of January 8th. There will be no classes from March 26th to Apri 8th for Easter/ Spring Break. Classes will resume the week of April 9th and will end by May 6th for Summer Break. (Students who wish to continue private music lessons beyond May 6th may do so by individual arrangement with the Westview ARTS Academy director.)
There will be opportunities for parents to observe student progress at various times throughout the year through the invitation of individual instructors, and/or during our year-end showcase on May 5th. Participation in the showcase will be by invitation and rehearsals on May 4th will be mandatory for participants. In addition, some of our students will have the opportunity to participate in our Christmas concerts on December 2nd & 17th. Information about these concerts and rehearsals will be sent out no less than a month before.
