Music Lesson Packages

City Music Center provides music lesson packages year-round for all instruments and voice parts (as well as music composition and recording/production). All ages (youth and adults) and skill levels are welcome. Music is meant to be shared and enjoyed by everyone. It has the ability to break down barriers and build character, shatter fears and heal the entire being. Regardless of skill level, how long you've been playing, or how long it's been since you last played, NOW is a great time to get started with music lessons.
