Instrument & Voice Lessons FOR ADULTS

The Adult Department welcomes all who are interested in instrument instruction, ensemble classes, and chamber music coachings and workshops.

Our faculty are distinguished performers and expert and caring educators, who shape an individualized course of study for each student.

Both beginners and experienced players and singers will find a supportive environment for developing proficiency and confidence on their chosen instrument. Diller-Quaile offers individual instruction for: piano, voice, guitar, strings, woodwinds, and brass. Diller-Quaile accompanists visit string, woodwind, brass and voice lessons regularly, and Adult Department Recitals provide performance opportunities for interested students. 

Submit an application below or email: lessons@diller-quaile.org to find out more. New students  interview with a department head to ensure placement with the teacher best suited to their musical needs and skill level.

In addition to individual lessons, Diller-Quaile offers weekly ensemble classes, weekly chamber music coachings, and Camerata. Chamber Music Workshops are held on select Sunday afternoons from September through May.
