Concord-Carlisle Instrumental Music School Lessons

Lessons are open to students of all ages including adults. There is a registration fee of $30 for the first child, $20 for each additional family member once annually (July-June). Tuition rates for private lessons are $33.00 per 30-minute lesson, $49.25 per 45-minute and $65.00 per 60-minute lesson. Financial assistance is available through the generous support of local citizens and the Concord Carlisle Community Chest. For further information please contact the IMSCC office.

Most lessons are one-on-one (one student with a teacher). However semi-private lessons (two students sharing a lesson) are now also available to NEW students in their first or second year of study. Semi-private lessons will be offered to students for one semester as an introduction to music lessons; after one semester, students are encouraged to continue with private study. Per student tuition rates for semi-private lessons are $22 per 30-minute lesson, $33 per 45-minute and $44.00 per 60-minute lesson.

Tuition charges are payable in advance for each semester of 16 lessons (Fall & Winter/Spring); payment plans are available on request. Summer lessons are more flexible and you may register for any or all of the 9 weeks in the summer session. (More information at registration.)
