Hello,

Are you new to DCMS? Or perhaps you’ve been here before but you aren’t sure of which instructors teach which instrument. Or, maybe it’s the other way around. You’ve been taking lessons with one instructor and for some reason you would like to know who else teaches the instrument you want to master.

Well, here is what you’ve been looking for, the 1st table associates an instrument with one of our great instructors. The 2nd table associates an instructor with the instrument(s) they teach. Enjoy!


Instrument Taught by Instructor(s)

This table lists all the instruments that are taught at DCMS (in alphabetic order).
Across from them is the instructor(s) that teach that instrument.
The 3rd column is a link to the instructor's currently available class times (for the Sep 2020 - Jun 2021 semester).
