An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Lakeside Music Lesson Program

Lakeside School offers a program that provides private music lessons to the larger Lakeside community.

The school’s individualized music coaching — previously limited to current students — is now available to more members of our community. This includes family members of current Lakeside students, Lakeside alumni, and Lakeside employees and their families. In addition, students at Open Window School are invited to participate. Current Lakeside students may take in-person or online lessons, and members of the extended Lakeside community may register for online lessons.

Lakeside instructors bring years of training and experience, offering coaching in string, wind, percussion, piano, and vocal. Musicians of all experience levels are encouraged to register; no prior experience with music, reading music, or playing instruments is necessary.

Lesson packages

Participants in the program register for lessons with an instructor matching their desired instrument. Lessons come in packages of 12, are one-on-one, and online lessons take place over Zoom. Lessons come in 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute packages.
