ServicesHickory Arts

Custom private instruction including strings, voice, piano, guitar, songwriting, acting, photography and more! If what you’re looking for is not listed, we’ll arrange it. For the most part, your needs determine your curriculum.

If you register your first full month of private sessions at Hickory Arts, it’s only $75 and includes a FREE intro. That’s a $45 discount! Register a loved one and we’ll give you a nifty gifty ticket!

*30/30/30 rule of thumb; 30-minutes for $30 and we limit no more than 30 students per teaching artist so each gets the attention he/she deserves. Availability depends on the teaching artist.
