music-lessons


Manning Music offers studio facilities and more than 20 private instructors. Private lessons are a great way for students to learn at their own pace. Private instruction affords students personal attention that they might not normally get in the band room. It also gives students the opportunity to ask questions about their instrument, music, technique and performance.

Lessons can be scheduled in-store and are now paid directly to Manning Music. Average rates for private lessons are $90 per month for half hour lessons with one lesson per week.
