North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) offers Private Music Instruction during the summer months —July 6th through September 11th, 2020— from the comfort of your home. We offer private music lessons in a wide range of instruments including Piano, Voice, Violin, Guitar, Drums, Trumpet, Clarinet, Flute, and more! We also offer Semi-Private and Group Lessons.

Due to the current evolving COVID-19 situation, we continue to closely monitor CDC and state guidelines and will communicate moving online private music lessons from online to in-person as we learn more.

During the 10 weeks of this summer, you may choose a number of options listed below:

Partial Summer
  • 5-pack lessons (1 lesson per week during 5 weeks)
  • 10-pack lessons (2 lessons per week during 5 weeks)
Full Summer
  • 10-pack lessons(1 lesson per week during 10 weeks)
  • 20-pack lessons (2 lessons per week during 10 weeks)
Customize your Summer
  • You make the schedule that best work for you and your instructor!
