New Students
Each new student will have a 30-minute interview and YMCA music studio orientation. During the interview, the instructor will determine the level at which the student will begin private lessons. The instructor will also discuss with the student and/or the student’s guardian whether or not the student should have 30-minute private lessons or 1-hour private lessons based off needs and desired outcome. The YMCA music studio orientation is to familiarize the student with the equipment available to them. Once the student has completed the YMCA music studio orientation and two weeks of private lessons, the YMCA Music Studio will be available to them for practice throughout the week.

Open Music Studio
The YMCA Music Studio is located at the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA in The Spot Teen Center. The music studio is open to anyone during Y open hours (as long as a private lesson is not going on) - inquire at the front desk.
