Music Programs

At the Columbus Centre we offer a wide variety of music lessons that are open to anyone of any skill level. Our seasonal one-on-one private lessons in vocals, guitar, piano, violin, flute, clarinet, or drums are taught by our professional instructors. For over 30 years, our music program has developed into one of the most prominent in the community, and the progress of our students is widely admired by those who attend our two annual recitals. For those who excel in our music academy, we have made available scholarship options so they can continue to practice with us and continue to grow as students of the arts.
