Mastering Musicianship (M2) Voice Lesson Program
(Statistics indicate that if a child participates in music, he or she is likely to earn higher grades and score better on standardized tests. Now there is powerful scientific evidence of a cause and effect link between music instruction and intelligence.
PLD's Mastering Musicianship Program, known as M2, provides for individual music lessons over a 10-week session each semester. The advantages to this program are cost and convenience. The rate for private lessons in Lexington can range from $20 to upwards of $45 per half-hour. The M2 program at PLD is only $150 for the 10-week session, and private instruction takes place in the practice rooms at PLD, under the direction of highly qualified vocal instructors.
Lessons are arranged to accommodate student needs. This coming spring semester lessons will occur Thursdays, 4:30-7:30 PM & Fridays 3:30-6:30 PM.
