Private Music Lessons
Each one-on-one lesson is tailored to fit your ability level and musical goals. All ability levels and ages are welcome, from beginner to professional. Many adult students are “come-back” players. Classical, jazz, swing, rock, pop, gospel styles are taught. Music books and supplies are purchased through the instructor or on your own.Link to page
Scholarships are available for up to 50% of one weekly session fee. Participants who would like to enter to receive a scholarship may send a one-page essay (a recorded statement is an option) and/or a piece of artwork to ArtsConnect, 9150 Winton Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45231. The essay should address a township/community issue the participant deems worthy of publicizing. Once the issue is explained, the participant must suggest a way that children in the township/community could address that issue. Many ways of addressing an issue might be mentioned but do consider how children’s artwork could address it too.Link to page
Camp Cancellation and Transfer Policy
We are understanding of last minute changes in schedules. However, great care has been made to comply with staffing standards and camper/counselor ratios as well as supplies to be provided. Transfer (a switch from one registered session to another session) or cancellation (a decision not to attend the camp session for which the camper has registered) requests should be made in writing 12 business days prior to the camp start date. Refunds will only be given for valid medical reasons and a doctor’s note will be required for a refund.Link to page
