Private Music Lessons

Piano, Voice, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Harp, Ukulele or Recorder Lessons 
at LCA



Over the last several years we have facilitated private music lessons at LCA during the course of the school year.  This past year we have had approximately 40 students take advantage of these opportunities.  We had come to an agreement with some Christian piano, voice, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, harp, and ukulele teachers to offer lessons at the school at a reduced rate as a benefit to our students. This has been a positive experience for the school, the music teachers and the students.  Students leave their regular class at their appointed time in the schedule and have their music lessons right here at the school.


For the 2019/2020 school year we have four music teachers with different teaching abilities. Please refer to the list below.  The rate will be $20 per lesson which includes a small fee which music teachers will pay to the school to help fund other music programs at LCA. You will find that this rate is still below standard rates found in the London area.
