If you are just starting out, returning to your instrument after a break, or just looking to learn something new, Peabody Plus has something for you! We offer a variety of lessons, classes, and special opportunities for adult learners of all ages and experience levels. Peabody enrichment classes and lessons are all offered through the Peabody Preparatory, and our offerings are tailored to the adult learner.

Private Lessons

Private lessons of different durations are available to adults of all experience levels — from beginners through the most advanced levels of study. Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis, are contingent upon teacher availability, and are available at our four in-person campuses: Annapolis, Downtown, Howard County, and Towson as well as online. Students enrolled in private lessons are required to have a practice instrument available; please ask for suggestions during the inquiry process. Members of the JHU community may be eligible for tuition remission.

Classes for adults include dance, chamber music, computer music, guitar, harp, jazz ensemble, music theory, strings, voice, and play-ins. Please see the online catalog for a full list of which courses are available this semester. Members of the JHU community may be eligible for tuition remission.
