The NIU Community School of the Arts offers online private music lessons on a wide variety of instruments beginning in June.   

NIU music students and faculty teach private online lessons, as well as experienced community-based artists and music educators.  Teachers and students select online conferencing software prior to starting lessons and complete six weekly music lessons June 15 – July 24 from the safety of home and at a time convenient for both.

Community members of all ages and skill levels are invited to participate in private online music lessons, to brush up old skills or learn a new instrument! Lessons are available on many musical instruments, including violin, cello, piano and guitar, plus clarinet, flute, viola, harp, saxophone, drums and more.  All lessons are taught remotely using online conferencing software.
