Concord Community Music School Private & Group lessons in Concord, NH
New students are introduced to the Music School through an individual orientation with the appropriate department chair. At that time, students learn about the Music School's philosophy and special offerings and share their goals and expectations. After this discussion, the department chair recommends a teacher and schedules a lesson time.
Faculty members, department chairs, the director of education, and the School's president, work together closely to monitor each student's progress. Communication between students, parents, and teachers is ongoing and includes annual progress reports. Parents are welcome to visit lessons by arrangement with the teacher.
