For Season 2021/2022, all of our group Music classes will be held onsite and will strictly follow all Oregon Health Authority COVID guidelines for safe operation. This may mean that we must continue with limited class sizes, masks required and social distancing practiced. As the OHA guidelines change, we will respond to those changes. Parents and students will receive further information regarding new COVID-related procedures as they are announced. Please be patient as we all navigate another unusual Season.
For Season 2021/2022, PMA will offer private music lessons both onsite and virtually. Upon registration you will receive specific details about scheduling and logon.
Parents must complete the Student Information Form found HERE before the student can come to class onsite.
After-School Arts Club
Discover Us! Discover Music!
The Portland Metro Arts Music Program offers group classes and private lessons in Bass Guitar, Cello, Flute, French Horn, Guitar, Piano, Trumpet, Ukulele, Violin, Viola, and Voice. 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 in an artform that enriches their life and builds confidence in their own abilities.
Music is one of the fundamental performing arts. Here at PMA students have several opportunities to share throughout the year and showcase their talent and accomplishments in class.
All music classes and lessons run from Sept. 7, 2021 - June 16, 2022 followed by a summer session of private music lessons. Enrollments are accepted throughout the year. Please click on the above links 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.
Classes listed may not be available every season. Please check the class schedule for current offerings. Contact us if you have a suggestion for a specific class. We frequently add new classes to our schedule. If you are interested in registering for a WAITLIST ONLY class, please sign up on the Waitlist of that class. If the blue Register button is not available next to a class, that class is full.

Group Music Classes
Learning in a group setting is a fun way to introduce playing an instrument, while getting “hands on” experience, making new friends & gaining musical skills! See your child's face beam in self-confidence with the success of making music from the very first lesson. Students will learn the basics of playing an instrument, while developing note-reading and overall musicianship. Violin, Viola, and Cello students will need to provide their own appropriately-sized instrument. Music is provided. Parent participation is strongly encouraged.
