An important part of the PCS mission is to support local music professionals and educators through professional development workshops and institutes, and to bring musical opportunities to underserved communities through outreach efforts.

Private & Group Instruction

We currently offer lessons in piano, violin, and voice. Students are given weekly lessons which may be thirty (30), forty-five (45), or sixty (60) minutes in duration. Instructors design lesson plans appropriate to the student's skill level; curriculum includes development of performance skills, technique, theory and general musicianship. All lessons are taught in the Moores School of Music Building on the University of Houston main campus
