Music Classes

In addition to private lessons, Darlington offers group guitar classes, and music workshops for students of all ages and backgrounds.

Because we are a member-supported center for the arts, a non-refundable Family Membership of $75, valid from September 1 through August 31, is required to enroll in all activities (exceptions are noted and include all workshops) and will be pro-rated to $40 for activities beginning after March 1. The Family Membership may be tax-deductible and allows Darlington to maintain facilities, provide excellent administration, care for our instruments and studios, and fulfill our mission to provide Every Art for Everyone.

The health of our students and staff at Darlington are of utmost importance.   Please click on the link to learn more about our policies set in place to ensure proper safety and social distancing protocols onsite.
