PRIVATE INSTRUCTION
Have you ever wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument? Or perhaps refine your existing skills? Explore a new style? Wakefield Music offers quality private instruction for most instruments and is available to students of all levels. All of our instructors are professional teachers and/or performers and lessons meet usually once a week in our studios. Fees and times vary so it best to contact the teacher directly.

WORKSHOPS & CLINICS
Wakefield Music occasionally presents special workshops and clinics to the general public. The workshops usually focus on a general topic and are limited in size. The clinics are often presented in conjunction with other organizations and tend to highlight a certain product or genre. Past artists featured include Pierre Bensusan, Jim Beloff, Doyle Dykes, Mark Hanson, Peppino D’Agostino, Paul Geremia, Beppe Gambetta, Artie Traum, Wendy Waldman and others.
