Class Description

Enjoy private music lessons in Paris in the comfort of your own home. The American Conservatory of Paris’ faculty comes directly to you, at your time and day of choice. This program is the most convenient way to take music lessons in Paris.

One-on-one Unique Teaching

During the lessons, our faculty will be working one-on-one with the student teaching the technique and repertoire of their chosen instrument while developing a sense of personal responsibility and individual musicianship. Our faculty will also teach note and rhythm reading, as well as basic music theory to every student. Private lessons allow the teacher to cater to each student’s unique needs and abilities resulting in the most efficient development. 

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.

Paired Lessons

For families with two children or friends studying the same instrument, we offer paired lessons: 30+30-mins or 45+45-mins. These lessons are back to back at the same address with the same teacher.

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

This option pairs with at-home lessons. 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: When you sign-up for at-home 45-minute or 1-hour lessons you can add one or more 15 or 20-minute follow-up 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.
