We welcome students of any age and background. We provide traditional private lessons as well as the innovative Tripods Method. We emphasize standard musical training and encourage diverse styles and experimentation in applying those skills. Performance is an important part of the GPMP curriculum, so students who study here are involved in live music performances throughout the community.
