Conservatory of Music

It is the vision of Berkeley Preparatory School’s Conservatory of Music to enhance our students’ musical endeavors through enrichment opportunities such as private instruction, chamber ensembles, group lessons, master classes, and specialized workshops. Through a college preparatory approach, applied studies are taught by professional musicians from across the Tampa Bay area to coach and prepare our students to reach their full musical potential.

Private lessons are offered on campus to accommodate the schedules of our students and their families. Whether it is in preparation for contests, auditions, recital performances, to further advance one’s skills, learning a new instrument, or simply for the purpose of enjoying making music, private and group lessons are for anyone and are offered in the following areas:
