Welcome to PRESTO!

PRESTO offers learners of all ages individual (and some small group lessons) in piano, strings, voice, guitar, percussion, theatre and some 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 (when available.) SU Student Instructors are selected by faculty advisors to whom they may consult concerning pedagogy or repertoire.
