About Our Lessons
With a focus on accelerated learning techniques, RMI offers an individualized curriculum through private lessons. Lessons can be either ½ hr (30 minutes) or 1 hr (60 minutes). This one-on-one format is great for custom tailoring a program around your needs. Many students will often take a ½ hr private session along with a 60-minute Performance Band session per week to create a more well-rounded approach to their education.
Lessons can either occur weekly or more sporadicly as one-offs depending on the students preference. View Pricing and Policy details here.
ALL STYLES ARE WELCOME.
Our instructors are more than just teachers: they are artists, visionaries, and leaders. Music is their calling, culture, and lifestyle. They are building community in and through their work by creating holistic bonds between student, instrument, and material. They are following their passion every day. We are honored to have these talented individuals on our team.
