Music Program

The Portland Metro Arts Music Program offers group classes and private lessons in Piano, Guitar, Violin, Viola, Cello, Voice, and Music Theory. Our teachers offer lessons to beginners as well as advanced students, and go at a pace that responds to each student's individual needs. Learning proper technique for voice or an instrument gives a student a lifelong skill and artform that enriches their life and builds confidence in their own abilities.

Music is also one of the fundamental performing arts. Here at PMA students have several opportunities to perform throughout the year and showcase their talent and accomplishments in class.

All music classes and lessons run from Sept. 6, 2016-June 17, 2017 with summer sessions of private music lessons. Enrollments are accepted throughout the year. Please click on the links below or scroll down for registration information. Private lessons are subject to instructor availability, and it is often a good idea to call or email us to inquire about lesson times.

We also offer supervised, arts-based childcare after school in our After-School Arts Club, with van transportation available to pick students up from area schools. This is a great way for busy and working parents to get their kids to after-school arts classes. CLICK HERE to see more about the Arts Club.
