Music students come to Desert Moon once a week for lessons. The music lesson consists of private instruction in a one-on-one setting with their instructor, and are generally followed by a music theory lab. In the private lesson, the students will be guided through a curriculum chosen by their instructor on their chosen instrument. The instructor's role is to teach the students how to play their instruments with good technic and musicianship, to encourage them as musicians by introducing them to new musical concepts and repertoire in an order that is logical and beneficial to their musical growth, and to ensure that the students understand how to effectively practice away from their lesson time. The music theory lab consists of computer programs aimed at leveling the music comprehension skills of the students through graded lessons and drills.
