Is your child homeschooled? Would you like them to learn an instrument in a studio setting? Would you like to participate in group performances, recitals, and other social events? If so, Muse Academy of Music’s Homeschool Music Lessons Program will surely meet your child’s needs!

What the HomeSchool Music Lessons Program Offers

Muse Academy of Music’s Homeschool Music Lessons offers a collaborative, social musical education that will prove an excellent addition to your child’s education. Each student receives a weekly private lesson on an instrument of your choosing (we offer piano, violin, cello, bass, clarinet, sax, or oboe). We also offer, about once per month, group classes in order to participate in informal performances, collaboration, and socializing through music. Students are able to participate in our formal recitals, offered twice a year, in December and Spring. There are additional performance opportunities throughout the year, and opportunities to contribute to the community, through our community performances. We have performed holiday concerts at the mall, attendance at local Farmer’s Markets and Fairs, etc.
