DAVENPORT, IOWA (August 5, 2020) — While the formula for success in the development of young musicians contains many parts, the guidance that a private instructor provides is paramount. Private instructors not only give students weekly instruction on how to improve musicianship and technical ability, but they also serve as trusted guides through various activities such as audition preparation, searching for the right college, and instrument purchase.

The Quad City Symphony Orchestra has played an active role in providing these services to our community for decades and the QCSO Private Lesson Program matches students of all ages and ability levels with highly qualified instructors for weekly lessons at locations around the Quad Cities.

Please check out the Private Lesson Program webpage for more details on instructors, locations, and financial aid.
