Music

The Multnomah Arts Center Music Program offers private, individual music lessons and ensemble classes to people of all ages. Private lessons are usually half an hour unless otherwise noted. Longer lessons may be available if the schedule permits. Students typically continue from term to term and returning students receive priority to sign up for their time slot each term.
