Private Lessons

All children deserve a good education–that’s something we can all agree on. But there’s an important part of a well-rounded education missing in many students’ curricula: music. Music is seen as an extra-curricular activity, a hobby, and even a passion, but not as an important part of the academic experience. The WSO Academy of Music is here to change that.

Music lessons for kids via private music lessons are astoundingly beneficial to cognitive development and health. Kids who study music or play an instrument aren’t just skilled musically. They score better on tests, develop communication and analytical skills, build healthy self-esteem, recognize the importance of community and cultural understanding, manage stress better–just to name a few!

Lessons are offered all string students in violin, viola, cello, flute and voice.
