Private Instruction Semester Long

7 Lessons

The keystone of the adult program is its private instruction. There are 14 lessons for spring semester 2018. First-time students are required to interview with the Executive Director prior to registration. Most importantly, the interview gives us the opportunity to learn about the personality, learning style, interests and goals of each student so that the best student-teacher match may be found. 

To make an appointment, please contact Executive Director Kathleen Suss at 203-724-9800 or email at to schedule.

Chamber Music

Chamber Music provides students of all ages with the opportunity to enhance their performance skills and expand their musical insight and awareness through coaching sessions. The faculty coach’s role is to be a musical guidance counselor/facilitator.

Chamber Music is for students of all ages who have had one or more years of private instruction. Participants will be grouped according to their skill level. Chamber Music is open to students who study privately with the Conservatory faculty as well as with outside teachers.

Chamber Music coachings are scheduled on Tuesday and/or Thursday, though exceptions are made when needed.

The Conservatory Chamber Music Program consists of seven sessions with a faculty coach each semester for vocal and instrumental ensembles culminates in an end of semester concert.
