Make your own kind of music at the Y’s lessons and classes. We offer group and private opportunities to learn on a variety of instruments including piano, guitar, bass and brass. You can even take a bow at your own recitals and performance. Whether you’re recapturing the music of your youth or you’ve never played a note, our music teachers can get you back in the groove.
