Private Music Lessons

Private lessons are one of the most effective ways of teaching music. The immediate guidance and feedback that a one-on-one teacher can give a student yields significant musical development. Students, who take private lessons progress faster, can perform at a higher level, and often gain greater enjoyment from their music.

As a service to our community, the American School of The Hague (ASH) organizes a group of private teachers to teach here at ASH. If you are interested in studying with one of these teachers please fill out the form found below. A private music teacher will contact you. All private music teachers here at ASH establish their own prices, schedules, and cancellation policies. These topics will need to be discussed with each private teacher individually and agreed upon before lessons begin.

As a guideline for our community, ASH has set the following limit to the amount each private teacher can charge for lessons:
  • 30-minute lessons – 25 Euro
  • 45-minute lessons – 35 Euro
  • 60-minute lessons – 45 Euro
There is often a great demand for private lessons and private teachers at ASH are not always able to accommodate every student. If a private teacher is not able to accommodate you for lessons you can choose to be put on a waiting list. Of course at any time you can also choose to look for other private teachers. There are many opportunities in The Hague and the surrounding communities.

Students enrolled in the high school (grades 9-12) may receive high school course credit for private lessons (.25 credits per semester). High school credit can be obtained from both private teachers who teach at ASH as well as private teachers who do not teach at ASH. Students wanting high school credit must fill out the Private Lessons For Credit Application found above and submit it to the high school office no later than the third week of the semester.

Private music lessons are currently offered in:
  • Brass (Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone)
  • Woodwind (Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, and Recorder)
  • Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, String Bass, and Guitar)
  • Drums and Percussion
  • Piano
  • Voice
These lessons complement what students learn in the music curriculum, and provide more in-depth one-to-one instruction on an instrument or voice. We are fortunate to have a range of highly qualified private music teachers who teach here at ASH.

Any questions about taking private lessons or receiving high school credit can be directed to Mr. Fox at bfox@ash.nl.
