Lessons & Performing Opportunities

Private Lessons

Traditional one on one instruction has always been a successful way to teach music. The weekly lesson can create a bond between teacher and student that will encourage excellent study habits, focus and discipline. With these skills, the student can become an excellent musician as well as become very successful in other career choices. Lessons may be half hour or full hour sessions. We offer lessons for Piano, Violin, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Guitar, Ukulele, Trumpet, Drums & Vocals.



Group Classes

The social aspect of playing music together is ideal for enhancing the process of learning in a fun atmosphere. Groups are formed according to age and level of ability. Throughout the year we will continue The Fiddle Club for our string, flute, clarinet, accordion, piano and guitar players. We work on 3 programs per year. The programs are Spring, late Summer and Winter.

Performance Opportunities

The Fiddle Club consists of students and professionals of all ages including violins, guitars, drums, piano, cello and accordion. We have learned and performed music of many different cultures including American Fiddle tunes, Irish, Jazz, Mariachi, Greek, Klezmer, Seafaring and Gypsy.

May and the Wandering Minstrels performs professionally in the area for weddings and other special occasions. From a solo violinist to a group as large as twenty musicians can be booked.

Every Spring we offer six formal recitals for all our interested students. The recitals take place in Central United Methodist Church. It is an opportunity for the students to prepare songs and perform in front of family and friends.

What we play:

Folk and Fiddle tunes, Country, Classical, Irish, Rock ‘N Roll, Popular, Movie Themes, Klezmer, Mariachi, Greek, Seafaring and Gypsy.

The Wandering Minstrels came together in January 2013.

From solo violinist up to a 20 piece ensemble can be booked. The Minstrels work well for wedding ceremonies, private parties and wedding cocktail hours.  The Minstrels also enhance all of our Fiddle Club performances.
