Music Lessons

Music lessons are one-on-one instruction based on the individual student's skill level and pace of study. Our instructors teach nearly every instrument and voice - whether you are a beginner with musical aspirations or if you have experience and want to advance your skills. 

Individual instruction is unquestionably the best way to make significant progress in your musical skill and understanding. Study each week throughout the entire year and watch your ability – and your enjoyment – grow! Contact the FSPA office at 810-238-1350, EXT 3 or email fspa@thefim.org to register for music lessons.
