Music Matters Now More Than Ever
What to Expect in 2020-2021
Music lessons will be arranged individually between student and teacher. Some lessons will be offered online. Some students and teachers will be able to meet face-to-face with plexiglass shields and other distancing measures in place. And some teachers will arrange a combination of online and face-to-face experiences.
Music lessons (also referred to as performance studies) are available to all St. Thomas students. Whether you've been studying privately for years or just want to develop basic performance skills, our faculty are happy to work with you! With the exception of beginning piano and vocal classes, all performance studies are individual lessons.
