summer lesson info
Looking ahead to summer 2019? Info regarding our 2018 summer lessons is provided below. We expect to offer the same lessons, and perhaps a similar Gig Center program, for 2019.
Registration for summer camps and private lessons is under way. The summer session runs from early July (7/5/18) through August 30. We offer lessons on Mondays through Thursdays, from 1:00 PM. (Some earlier lesson times may be available, as well as some Saturday guitar lessons.) Please note that our store hours may differ from school hours, and evening lessons are sometimes available. Contact our office to enroll. You can do your summer registration in person or over the phone, at (203) 259-7615.
During the summer, there is no "semester"; you may simply register for as many lessons as you like. Tuition is payable upon registration. (You pay for the lessons when you schedule them. You may schedule a lesson or two at a time, but we recommend scheduling your summer lessons as far in advance as possible. Availability is limited and all times are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.)
30-minute lesson: $45.00
45-minute lesson: $67.50
60-minute lesson: $90.00
The Gig Center at Westport (Rock Band Summer Camps)
Our group instruction program, The Gig Center, is offering week-long (5-day) summer camps for the weeks of July 9, July 16, and July 23 (pending enrollment). Each camp meets Monday through Friday, 10:00 to 3:30, and culminates with a live performance for family and friends on Friday afternoon.
The first two sessions (weeks of July 9 and 16) will focus on "rock classics", while the week of July 23 will have more of a "singer/songwriter" emphasis. Students rehearse as a band, prepare material, and learn a variety of musically-related skills. Some instrumental or vocal experience may be required. Additional info is available on the Gig Center website, or by calling (203) 292-8934.
The camp fee is $475.00 per week, and we offer a 20% sibling discount.
