Private Lessons Academy

The Cardinal Newman School Department of Music is proud to continue offering the CN Private Lessons Academy. This is an opportunity for students to take one-on-one lessons with highly qualified instructors in several areas including brass, woodwinds, percussion, strings, guitar, piano and voice. This program is open to all students of any ability level, even those who have never played an instrument. Cardinal Newman music students are strongly encouraged to enroll in the lessons academy and will receive extra credit in their music classes for studying privately at CN.

All lessons will take place at Cardinal Newman School. Students will have 14 lessons each fall and spring, and each lesson will be either 30 or 60 minutes. Each semester, students will have one masterclass with all students in their musical area, as well as a combined recital. 

To enroll in the Private Lessons Academy there is a fee of $580/semester or $1,060/year for 30 minute lessons. Students who wish to study for 60 minutes each week will be billed $875/semester or $1,650/year. If the student wishes to study multiple areas (ie: trumpet and voice) there will be a discounted price as follows. For 30 minute lessons in both areas, $1,025/semester or $1,900/year. For 60 minute lessons in both areas, $1,625/semester or $3,100/year. 

Fees will be due for the fall semester on September 30th and on January 30th for the spring. If there are issues with these dates please contact the music department to customize a payment plan.
