String Private Lessons

Private instruction is the foundation of a sound musical education. At NEC Prep, the depth, expertise, and diversity of our faculty assure a great match for our students' individual needs. A unique feature of our private lesson program is that it includes the opportunity to participate in workshops, recitals, evaluations, and our annual concerto competition, which offer every student valuable performance experience and feedback from a variety of teachers.

Private lessons of 30, 45, and 60 minutes are offered for students of all levels (including beginners!) in all the categories listed under faculty. Prospective string students must set up an audition or placement interview with Magdalena Richter, String Department Chair, who will advise each student personally regarding an appropriate studio teacher placement and path of study. For information on teacher placement interviews and scheduling an appointment with Ms. Richter, please contact the Prep office.
