Contra Costa Music Guild is a collective of music teachers providing in person and online music experiences for students all over the world. We currently offer private lessons on flute, piano, cello, violin, viola, guitar, harp or recorder. Please read about each of our teachers on the bio page.
In this unique time in our history we are combining private music lessons with an array of class offerings that are included in our price of weekly private lessons.
Students not only get quality private instruction from patient, caring, and talented teachers, but also a variety of group classes on zoom. Students can attend as many group classes as they want. Some of these class offerings are: music theory, aural skills, music history, flute studio class, cello ensemble class, piano basics and violin technique class. In addition we have occasional specialty workshops with topics like: ‘Mastering your performance/ Dealing with performance anxiety’, ‘Meditation and Breathing’, ‘Improvisation for the classical musician’, ‘Creating a music resume for college’, ‘Sight reading practice’, ‘Jazz improvisation’, and many more. By offering a variety of classes, students get a more complete musical experience.
We also have monthly virtual recitals on zoom where students can invite family members from anywhere to join in the experience. We realize that live performances are difficult during this time, but want to encourage performing. This not only great for musical development but also personal development. The more students perform, the more confident they become. It is also helpful to have a date set for a performance as a student is working on a piece of music.
To recognize the hard work and motivate students further we have began a certificate program. This program will be based on participation of recitals and group classes. For example 8 classes and 1 recital would be our CCMG Bronze Certificate, 12 classes and 2 recital our Silver Certificate, 15 classes and 3 recitals would be our Gold Certificate, and 20 classes and 4 recitals would be our Platinum elite certificate. Teachers can of course coach for RCM or ABRSM assessment exams. Every students gets a personalize, custom musical experience with private lessons.
Rates for lessons are as follows:
$45 a half hour lessons (paid monthly)
$60 for a 45 minute lessons (paid monthly)
$80 for an hour lesson (paid monthly)
Rates are paid directly to the private teacher. They will go through payment methods and invoice you directly.
All private lessons include the weekly group classes and recitals. If a student would just like to do the weekly classes without private lessons the rate is $75 monthly.
