Private Music Lessons

Piano, Voice, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Harp, Ukulele or Recorder Lessons 
Online Through Skype or Zoom! 



Over the last several years we have facilitated private music lessons at LCA during the course of the school year.  This year, we know many of the students continued throughout the summer with online lessons.  I would like to confirm the teachers that are available for you to contact for lessons this year.  Students would do their lessons online until such time as we are able to have the music teachers return to LCA. 

For the 2020/2021 school year we have three 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. Parents would make an agreement with the music teacher and payment would go directly to that music teacher.  You will find that this rate is still below standard rates found in the London area.
