Program Description

We offer ISP students private music lessons at ISP after school at any campus.

At ISP Ranelagh

We offer private music lessons at ISP of 30-minutes or 45-minutes for beginners, and 1-hour for students entering at least their 3rd year of study. Also, students can pair their private instrument lessons with ABRSM music theory lessons online.

At ISP Beethoven and Cortambert

We offer private music lessons of 45-minutes or 1-hour. Also, students can pair their private instrument lessons with ABRSM music theory lessons online.

Performing Opportunities

We believe music is meant to be shared therefore each student enrolled in private lessons is offered two performing opportunities per year in a Parisian concert hall. One concert takes place halfway through the school year and the second at the end of the school year so that we can hear our progression.

Optional Exam Preparation

Finally, this program also prepares students for the non-mandatory Associated Board of the Royal School of Music Exams (ABRSM). The Conservatory encourages all students to prepare for these exams as they give a tangible goal to achieve and motivate students throughout the year. ABRSM is the most internationally recognized music examination organization. To find out more information about these exams please see the post ABRSM Exams.

NEW THIS YEAR – Follow-up Lessons Online

Follow-Up Lessons Online Weekly – 15 & 20-minute Options

This option pairs with private lessons at ISP. Follow-up lessons are unique because we tailor them to your needs. You may choose to have one or more weekly follow-up lessons. Here is how it works: If you sign-up for lessons after school at ISP, you can add one or more 15 or 20-minute follow-up online lessons online each week.

Are music lessons online worth it?

In short, YES! The 2019/2020 school year taught us so much about organizing for the unpredictable. In Paris alone, we had interruptions from strikes, protests, and of course, the pandemic. During the entire confinement, we continued music lessons online trying different teaching methods, lesson lengths, and even times of the day to find the right balance to drive our students’ progress. What they accomplished was truly incredible. Everyone soared with the format of a few shorter lessons online each week.
