The CMS offers private lessons to students of all ages and levels of ability. Tuition is based on the teacher you select, the number of lessons in the session, and the length of the weekly lesson (30-min; 45-min; 60-min). All teachers have completed UA compliance training, passed background checks, and have previous teaching experience.
The CMS teacher listing can vary by semester or during the semester (as teacher schedules fill up).
