We provide music lessons for kids ages 3-18! Children ages 3-5 can start in Meet the Instruments, which presents them to the violin, piano, cello, flute and guitar. When they choose their favorite, they can transfer to the Suzuki Program. Kids who know what instrument they want to play can begin in the Suzuki Program studying the violin, piano, cello, flute or guitar. Classes are two times a week, a private class and a group class. The private class is the heart of the instruction, and the group class offers peer support, ensemble rehearsal and performance practice. Intermediate and Advanced students studying at TESS or elsewhere can choose from electives including Composition with Composer in Residence Dr. Paul Levi, Fiddling, Jazz, Chamber Ensembles, and more!
