Miami Conservatory of Music welcomes students all year round, children through adults, beginners through advanced. MCofM is open all-year-round except for most legal holidays (see the schedule in General Information and Policies or Calendar Events on the right.)


1) Tell us more about you

  • Are lessons for you, or someone else? If for a child, how old?
  • What instrument(s) are you interested in?
  • What style of music?
  • Any experience?
  • Are you interested in a fixed schedule (coming every week), or on a flexible schedule (coming leisurely)?
  • What is your availability? Please, give us a few day/time combinations that work for you.
  • Do you prefer a 30, 45 or 60 min lesson?
  • Contact phone number and email.

Most of these answers can be given on the online application here. Once we receive it, we will email you back with available options.

2) Interview – Trial lesson

An interview-trial lesson is scheduled with the professor for the desired instrument. If multiple teachers are available, we will offer recommendations based on availability and schedule compatibility. All teachers are well qualified, with degrees in their field of music or significant professional experience.

Students and their parents will meet with a MCofM professor for approximately 30 minutes.

During this initial meeting, the student and parent(s) will discuss their goal, find answers to questions like what kind of instrument to buy or rent, where to find music books, decide on the appropriate length of lesson and frequency.

For a student who desires a fixed weekly schedule, the trial lesson is free.
For a student who would like to be on a flexible schedule, the $10 interview fee is waived when the student registers.

3) Registration

After the interview, parent(s) or the student will confirm the schedule, complete the application and sign the policies.

Lessons are set up according to the student’s day preference and our professors’ availability. For a student on a fixed schedule, appointments will be reserved for you for the entire academic year, unless a change in schedule is requested or classes are stopped by the student.

4) Payment

Determine payment preferences.
First payment will include the $30 registration fee and the first month. A deposit may apply for non automatic payments.
