New to the Music Center and interested in Private Lessons (Suzuki or Traditional)? Please fill out our Student Profile Form.


Private instruction at Music Center is structured to encourage students to expand their developing skills into individual and ensemble performance, better understanding of music theory and history, and active participation in the rich musical culture of the Seattle area. All students first consult with a Music Center staff member to determine the most appropriate path of instruction. In addition to Private Lessons, Music Center is also proud to offer lessons through the Music Center Suzuki Academy.

Private Lessons

The starting point for many students is a traditional Private Lesson. Students are invited to take a 30-minute introductory lesson at a reduced lesson rate. At Music Center, we believe the best learning happens through weekly private lessons. During lessons, students receive basic music instruction and are encouraged to perform in student recitals and take part in performance groups. Students taking traditional lessons have the opportunity to enroll in The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program.
