Stay Up to Date on SU's COVID-19 Precautions

Welcome to PRESTO!

PRESTO offers learners of all ages individual (and some small group lessons) in piano, strings, voice, guitar, percussion, theatre and most wind and brass instruments. We work closely with the Music and Theatre Department faculty and students.


Lessons are taught by professionals – either faculty or vetted regional musicians – OR by trained and gifted Salisbury University students. SU Student Instructors are selected by faculty advisors to whom they may consult concerning pedagogy or repertoire.

After enrolling online, a student is assigned an instructor. The instructor will call the student/parent to create a customized weekly lesson schedule for late afternoon, evening or Saturday morning. All lessons are held on the campus of Salisbury University.

As a division of the Center for Extended and Lifelong Learning, PRESTO is dedicated to enriching the lives of all our students.

Because of Covid19, Summer 2020 PRESTO lessons will all be taught online. Summer lessons are for RETURNING STUDENTS ONLY

Mrs. Wigfield has taught private voice for 35 years to singers of all ages, and specializes in work with children and teens. Mrs. Wigfield’s children and adult choirs have received many awards for outstanding performance. She is known in our region for being the music director/conductor of the MAGI Choral Festival for 25 years, leading a 125-185 voice MAGI Children’s Choir and massed choirs. In February of 2019, Mrs. Wigfield became the Artistic Director of the Salisbury University Children’s Choir, leading children as they develop vocal skills, musicianship, sight singing and ear training through exposure to quality repertoire.
