Thames Valley Music School Programs

At Thames Valley Music School, our programs are created to provide you with the environment and instruction necessary for artistic growth. We offer private lessons in piano, string and wind instruments, percussion and voice, as well as ensembles for all ages and abilities.

Private Lessons

Have you thought about picking up an instrument for the first time? Do your children seem musically inclined, but need an outlet to explore their talents? If music is still in your blood or your kids have the desire to learn an instrument, then private lessons are the perfect opportunity to grow and develop your skills. Private lessons run continuously from September – June and students can enroll at any time.

Thames Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra

Calling all talented musicians, advanced high school students and those striving for artistic excellence. The Thames Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra was created just for you! Under the development and expertise of conductor Evan Meccarello, TVMS is searching for enthusiastic and talented students to perform in a high-quality orchestral environment. Performances are presented twice each season (December and May). Performers are chosen by audition only.

String Groups

If you’re a young musician with experience in violin, viola, cello or bass, then one of our string groups may be the next step for you. No matter your level, we’ll give you the tools and skills you need to succeed in orchestral performance. Our diverse repertoire ranges from classical to pop, so you’ll always be challenged with new periods and styles of music in a friendly, collaborative environment.

Junior String Group

Our Junior String Group is available to students of all levels in grades 4-6. Rehearsals are Sundays 4:00 – 5:00 PM with performances in December and May. This is the perfect opportunity for your student to learn and play with others who are equally passionate.
