Guitar, violin, piano, voice, tuba, bassoon, clarinet … the list goes on and on.

The UNCG School of Music, Theatre and Dance (SMTD) is now offering a wide range of private music lessons, taught exclusively by students, to the UNCG and Greater Greensboro communities.

Launched this fall as part of the SMTD Community Arts Collaborative (CAC), the Private Lessons Program offers one-on-one musical instruction at an affordable price. In return, UNCG undergraduate (juniors and seniors) and graduate students receive invaluable, hands-on learning experience, as well as some extra cash.

Whether you’re a staff or faculty member who has never taken a music lesson in your life, or a student hoping to hone your skills, the program offers a variety of lessons that can be tailored to your needs, interests and busy schedule.

“The Private Lessons Program is about affordability and accessibility,” said Erika Rauer, CAC program director. “This is a great program for a beginner or intermediate student who may not have had access to lessons before.”

Private lessons are available in packages of five, 10 and 20, and pricing is based on the experience level of the instructors. All instructors are music performance or music education majors and must apply to the program and be selected in order to teach. Lessons are available to individuals of all ages and all skill levels and take place in the Music Building’s practice rooms.

The Private Lessons Program is open to all UNCG faculty, staff and their families, as well as students and the general public. For more information and to register for lessons, complete the inquiry form here.
