Lessons are the central core of music education and provide a focused environment for students of all ages and abilities to grow. Students have the freedom to explore a wide range of instruments and styles and develop creativity, dedication, and life skills to prepare them for success in any future pursuit. Weekly lessons build confidence and self-expression, the cornerstone for sharing music with others in the studio and on stage.
Lessons are offered for adults, teenagers, and children ages 6 and older, at all levels. Students ages 4-5 are eligible to take private lessons in Dalcroze Eurhythmics piano or Suzuki cello, viola, violin, or guitar. Private lessons require a commitment from the student as well as from the family.
Prospective students should contact the School for free placement consultations to help advise them in their musical studies. Call (617) 484-4696 to schedule your phone or in-person consultation. New student information forms should be completed on our website prior to scheduling a placement appointment.

Interested in a string instrument? Powers offers the Suzuki method of instruction, where students learn by listening, daily repetition, and parental guidance and encouragement. We also offer the Mark O'Connor Method for violin which uses American music such as blues, rock, and fiddle. It is based on technical excellence, but also exposes the student to improvisation, chordal awareness and FUN!
