The Performing Arts Academy of Bryan College exists to provide a variety of musical experiences for Dayton and surrounding communities.
The Performing Arts Academy currently offers private instruction in piano, organ, voice, flute, violin, cello, ukulele, guitar, songwriting, and more. Private lessons are given in 30-60 minute increments, depending on your preference and the recommendation and availability of the teacher.
Level 1 teachers are student-teachers who are still gaining experience but have already undergone supervised pedagogical training.
Level 2 teachers hold a music degree and already have teaching experience in a variety of environments.
Bryan College professors and teachers with advanced degrees and substantial teaching experience make up our Level 3 instructors.
Music lessons are billed by the semester and can be paid as one-semester payments or four equal installments (August-November and January-April). Semester tuition includes 12 lessons (which do account for breaks). Payments made after the 15th of the month will incur a $25 late fee.

The Youth String Ensemble is a beginning string ensemble that will teach the basics of ensemble playing: following a conductor, using dynamics, playing as a group, counting rhythms, and more. Being part of an ensemble is a fun way to reinforce the skills students are practicing in private lessons as well as help them develop a love for their instrument. (Cost of participation includes weekly instruction and all materials other than your instrument.)
