Bonsor Arts - Music Feature

Music is a universal language. Regardless of where you're from, or what your background is, a good melody is something that everyone can enjoy and understand. Take a musical journey with the Bonsor Arts Music Program. Classes are available for all ages and musical abilities. 

Long Term Music Lessons

Bonsor offers long term semi-private music lessons (one instructor, two students) and private lessons (one instructor, 1 student) from September-June. If space is available additional lessons may be added upon request at any time.

Lessons are offered 7 days a week for ages 5 years to adult. Students must bring their own instrument to class (drums and pianos are provided for in-class use). A second guitar or ukulele will be provided for in-class use for siblings taking a class together.  

Private Lessons 
For all levels. Students learn at their own speed and class content is directed by the student / parent. 

Year 1 (semi-private)
For students with no experience. 

Year 2 & 3 (semi-private)
For students who have had 30 (year 2) or 60 (year 3) previous lessons.
