There are many great musicians in the world, but teaching music is a gift as well as a skill. RSM’s private instructors are not only excellent musicians, but are also exceptional teachers who have been carefully selected by RSM’s administration.

Virtual & In-Person Group Lessons - Coming Soon!
Group classes at The Richardson School of Music are fun and exciting! They are an excellent way for Children, Teens and Adults to begin their musical training. These classes will focus on fundamentals, and will give students a supportive environment to blossom in their musical journey and also to be ready for the more intensive demand of private lessons. RSM classes will have a student/teacher ratio of 6/1 in most group classes —allowing for a significant amount of individual attention.
Parents often wonder if they should sign their child up for group lessons or private lessons! There truly is no right answer. Although many students, regardless of personality, do well in private lessons, some students learn better in a group setting. The social environment of group lessons just makes it a better fit for some!
Group classes are now Postponed due to COVID-19. Please contact us if you would like to be in our group class interest list, or visit our Private Lessons page for current options.
