Music is a truly wonderful part of life, and it’s something that everyone should be able to fully enjoy and express themselves with. That’s why at Riverside Performing Arts, our instructors strive to make music lessons as enjoyable and approachable as possible. Whether you are totally new to an instrument or want to bring your skills to the next level, our music lessons can help get you there.
Music Lessons for Children & Adults
At Riverside Performing Arts, we believe that musical education is for everyone. That’s why we offer private, personalized lessons to both children and adults. Our skilled instructors will tailor their lessons to your skill level, goals, and personality to make learning both fun and effective.
We offer a variety of music lessons, including:
Intro To Music
Ages 4-10 Years
Your child will learn the basics of music, such as rhythm, pitch, dynamics, and more through playing instruments, listening to music and expression through movement. They will make new friends and create lasting memories in this Music and Movement camp, taught by a professional instructor with a bachelor’s degree in music performance!!
We teach students how to use their voice to the best of their ability, along with how to move, project and tell a story using singing and acting. Our holistic approach gives students confidence, a knowledge of storytelling and performance, and a strong background in the performing arts..
Guitar & Ukulele Lessons
At Riverside Performing Arts there is an option for everyone. Whether you want to learn to shred with wicked distortion, slap down a funky bass line, or learn the grace of classical finger style, we have something to support your needs. We encourage electric or acoustic play and the exploration of a wide variety of styles and genres. All our 30 minute lessons are supported with a strong base in applied music theory.
Private piano lessons are back at RPA! All lessons are instructed by the incomparable Andrea Ulshafer, who attended Marylhurst University and received a Bachelor of Music in Performance and Pedagogy. It is her passion to help nurture a love and interest in music by providing a well-rounded piano education and tailoring lessons to meet the needs and goals of each student.
