Private Instruction for Adults

Adults of all ages are welcome at Community Music School. Whether you are learning an instrument for the first time, becoming reacquainted with an instrument, or a skilled musician in need of guidance, CMS is here to help.

No matter your age, whether you are an absolute beginner or someone with considerable music experience, you are welcome to study at CMS. We can generally find time in our teacher’s schedules that fits the demands of the busy adult life style. Adult students taking weekly instrumental or vocal lessons can enjoy the same curriculum benefits as our school-aged students. For those who can not manage regular weekly lessons, a flexible schedule can be arranged if it is agreeable to the private lesson instructor. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out at (610) 489-3676!

Suzuki What?! Suzuki Parent Education Class

Parents participation contributed to the success their child’s Suzuki experience. More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach. Call  (610) 489-3676 with any questions!
