Piano and Music Lessons

In addition to teaching French, the Language and Music House also provides music lessons.  (Cost varies based on the instrument.) Piano lessons are 30 minutes once per week and typically cost approximately $100 per month.  Violin and vocal lessons are available as well.  Global Montessori Academy was blessed to be the beneficiary of a beautiful baby grand piano, a spinet, and a valuable upright piano when we purchased our new facility.  These pianos and the lovely sanctuary and chapel spaces provide an excellent space for the children to practice and learn music in.  For more information please visit the Language and Music House website.
