  1. Each available class is one lesson. Enroll for every day (lesson) that you plan to attend. Lessons should be scheduled once per week. If you would like your lesson to be longer than 30 minutes, call or email the office to adjust the length.

  3. For consistency in learning and scheduling, enroll with the same instructor for the entire summer.

Summer lessons are $30 each for the first five lessons and $27 for each additional lesson.

We want to keep instructors’ schedules as compact as possible. We will do our best to accommodate your selected lesson schedule, but we may contact you to adjust your lesson time as needed.

WHat our Students Have to say about NISOM


I had taken music lessons in grade school. I wasn’t great at it, so I abandoned it in high school. I’m so glad to have an outlet to revive my passion for music in such a welcoming environment.

Amy D.

Shipping Manager by day; Piano lessons @ NISOM

I love my violin. I’m the only one who plays an instrument in my family. It makes happy.

Sequoia O.

Age 7; Second Year Violin Student

I started with the violin, but now I play cello. Oh–piano, too (although I’m not as good on piano as I am on strings…yet). I decided to take on another instrument because I really love my teacher at NISOM and music is in my blood.
