Set a Foundation
Private lessons provide focused, one-on-one instruction, while guiding students to develop their unique talents at their own pace. Lessons establish a solid foundation in theory, repertoire and polished technique. Students are exposed to a variety of musical concepts and skills while being inspired to achieve their goals. Private lessons are available on piano, voice, violin, cello, guitar, and music theory.
Each student is paired with a faculty member who assesses needs and guides students toward achieving their goals. Lessons are offered in 15, 30, 45, and 60 minutes intervals.

"Learning music is worth trying no matter how old you are. It is fulfilling beyond my wildest imagination and I’m having a great time studying with Lindeblad School of Music." - Ken from North Caldwell NJ
"We have been at Lindeblad now for 4 years. We have two children enrolled now and will have a third enrolled in the fall. We have loved the experience. The teachers love music and love teaching music. It's been great watching the kids grow in their music knowledge and love of music. It's been a terrific experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a music school." - Sidd from Wyckoff NJ
"Lindeblad School of Music has been a huge part of my journey with music. I’m very grateful to have found such a professional facility that prioritizes student growth and comfort. Four years ago I could have never imagined how far my piano abilities would have come. I have recently had the privilege of adding voice lessons to my schedule and I couldn’t be more excited to see the large improvement I’ve made in all areas.” - Daniel from Fairfield NJ
