Music Lessons & Classes
Whether you’re a child or an adult, individual instruction is at the heart of Hochstein’s comprehensive program and is the most effective way to improve your musical skills. 

Lessons are available in all orchestral instruments—as well as in composition, electric bass, acoustic and electric guitar, harp, percussion, piano, and Suzuki violin, viola, cello, and flute. Lessons can be scheduled on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays. You may begin at any time during the year. Click here for more information on individual lessons.

We provide a wide variety of group classes for all ages. Our classes for children emphasize fun, creativity, and movement, while our classes for tweens and teens are tailored to the energy and exploration this group desires. Adults can relax in the company of like-minded classmates who are dedicated to trying something new, honing a skill, or enjoying going in-depth on a topic of study. See below for the full list of group classes.
