We eagerly welcome students of all skill levels and ages - both young and old, accomplished and beginner - to explore, pursue, and strengthen their artistic interests. Our Private Lesson and Group Instruction Offerings are open to all students in the CSRA. The Knox Music Suite, an acoustically-designed facility, boasts four practice rooms and two classrooms that accommodate private and group music instruction of the highest quality in the Augusta area.

The Conservatory Program attracts and utilizes the finest teaching artists in our local professional music and performing arts community. The exceptional faculty recognizes and enjoys the promise of young musicians and performing artists as well as guiding the advanced skills of more experienced musicians.
