As of fall 2022, Covid-19 cases are rising in our area. In order to continue teaching uninterrupted, we ask families and students to follow these steps:
1 – If you/your student has a positive Covid test, please let Mountain Top know, including the day that symptoms started/test was positive. Please do this even if the student tested positive/starting having symptoms after the lesson was over. (We will let you know right away if your teacher develops Covid).
2 – If you/your student has active symptoms, please DO NOT COME TO MOUNTAIN TOP. If our teachers see that a student has active symptoms, they may ask the student to leave the classroom and not finish the lesson. If the student is a child, we will call the parent/guardian to come and pick them up.
3 – If you/your student is recovering from Covid and has no fever or active cough AND it has been five days since the onset of symptoms, they may return to lessons masked. Be sure to tell the office or the teacher before the lesson that the student is on (or beyond) day 5 without symptoms. Please continue to send your student masked until they test negative.
4 – teachers may ask students to mask in their studios at any time. We have a supply of masks here.
Thanks – with your cooperation, we hope to keep you, your students and our faculty and staff Covid-free and able to continue lessons uninterrupted.


Mountain Top Music Center offers private instruction for all band and orchestra instruments, piano, bass, acoustic and electric guitar, voice, and drum set. We can also arrange lessons for banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, harmonica, and ukulele.

Please register for group and individual classes online. Your  registration cannot be confirmed until the initial payment is received. Registrations after the semester has begun will be pro-rated.

After registering, you will be contacted to confirm day and time. The balance of the lesson fee, less any discount or scholarship award, is due in equal monthly payments. You will be invoiced by email. (Call the office to arrange one time payment in full or to arrange to have payments automatically charged to your to credit card once a month.)

A 5% multi-class discount is applied to individual lessons for households that register for more than one individual lesson.
