Individual Lessons

MacPhail Jumpstart

Start Music ASAP
4 half hour lessons at 25% off. Valid for new students. Subject to instructor/instrument availability.

Each year on Juneteenth, MacPhail will pause to reflect how the monstrous chapter of American slavery has deeply harmed so many over hundreds of years and celebrate one of the most significant turning points in the history of our Republic. 

MacPhail Center for Music will be closed June 18 & 19, 2021 in commemoration of Juneteenth, the oldest celebration of the end of slavery.

We invite you to join us in reflection, please take a moment to view a musical message by MacPhail faculty, JD and Fred Steele.
