Studio Lessons 
private lessons for students of all ages and skill levels

Through Studio Lessons, CMC Atlanta offers students ages 4 and up private lessons on the instrument of choice.  Most Elementary Division students will meet with their instructor weekly, one-on-one for 30 minute sessions; as the student develops skills, masters foundational concepts and begins to tackle more complex technical and conceptual material, lessons are extended to 45-minutes in length.  

Schedule options include weekday or weekend appointments.  We offer a discount (from 10%-25% off) for students who schedule off peak and weekend appointments.    

Private Studio Lessons for students age 4 and up options include:

  • piano lessons
  • singing lessons
  • guitar and bass lessons
  • drum lessons
  • lessons on a string instrument, including violin, viola, cello, and upright bass lessons
  • lessons on a wind instruments, including flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone lessons
  • composition lessons 

Whether your interests are Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, or American Folk & Roots music, traditional or experimental approaches, lessons with our faculty provide the means and the motivation for developing musical skills and understanding.  When you enroll, we match you with the desired resource-- a great teacher-- and pair you up in an inspiring setting, at a time convenient for you.  It's not the back room of a music store with a contractor, and it's not your living room, where distractions of all kinds can interefere.  It's the student and a professional music teacher in a finely appointed music studio.  

Lessons are available weekdays and weekends.  Our peak hours are weekdays from 2:30 until 6:00 and Saturdays from 9 am until 1 pm.  Discounts are available for students who come during off peak or weekend hours.  


CMC Atlanta believes a comprehensive or ideally even holistic approach to learning is required for a child or adult to become a creative and literate musician. When a parent enrolls a student in Studio Lessons with us, we invite them to learn about our other program options, which provide convenience and added comprehensive curricular support for developing musical skills and understanding.  For as little as $15 more per month, our Immersion Programs, including the Afterschool Music Program (AMP), Saturday Morning Music School, and the Day Camp for Kids, combine lessons with access to the following:

  • Comprehensive Musicianship Program (CMP) Courses and/or Workshops  Students participate in ongoing singing classes, drumming classes, music literacy classes, music theory classes, song writing and improvisation workshops, etc., all of which are designed to cultivate musical skills and understanding
  • Performance Programs and Projects  Students participate in a variety of performance and project options, developmentally and stylistically sensitive, which motivate and also provide a social context for music making
  • Basic Childcare and Transportation  The Afterschool Music Program includes all the elements of any aftercare program, like transportation from local schools to the Music Center, snacks, supervision.  Likewise, the Saturday Morning Music School and Day Camps are available whenever local schools are closed and childcare is needed or desired
