Private instruction is offered in the following areas: voice, violin, viola, cello, flute, trombone, percussion, steel drums, piano and guitar. Other areas may be available upon special request. Voice students must be at least 13 years old. It is the student’s responsibility to provide their own instrument and lesson books for private lessons.

Student artists are BGSU College of Musical Arts’ students pursuing their bachelor’s or master’s degree, and have prior teaching and performing experience before becoming a member of our teaching staff. Student artist instructors vary by term.
