Private Music Lessons

Our private music lessons provide one-on-one music instruction. Gifted piano, guitar and percussion teachers work to cultivate skills by incorporating requests and popular music along with the classics during lesson times.

Piano & violin instructed by Melanie Maz, Ben Silvers and Roselyn Hobbs. View violin resources and piano resources.
Guitar, drums, piano and ukulele instructed by Jonas Kublickas.

Space is available | Call (617) 227-5838 ext. 14 to inquire about availability

Private music lessons are conducted in the music room in the basement and are one-on-one (instructor with child), as is the industry standard with most private music lessons. Parents and caregivers are welcome to stay with the child in the room with the instructor during the lesson, but that is at the discretion of the parent.

There will be both standing and mat exercises to challenge all your major muscle groups. A flexibility segment will be added to the end of class.

Hands-On Art & Self-Expression (19 months-3 years)
One of the most intriguing ways that youngsters express themselves is through art. As children draw, paint and make collages, they are learning about the world. Toddlers are not yet consciously aware of color coordination and spatial relationships, but art can give them a sense of these areas in this stage of their development - and this is only the beginning. Art provides another much-needed outlet for budding young minds, and at the same time it teaches important skills as they express themselves through the use of different materials. With all of these benefits, it's easy to see why encouraging toddlers to be artistic is so important: join us in the art room as we use a rainbow of colors, clay, paint, paste and so much more to pique your child's curiosity and creativity in this exciting multimedia program.
