Creative Education For All Ages

Music Summer ProgramsAt Black Hills Studios of the Arts, we believe that creative education is ageless, and that the benefits are timeless. We began with offering lessons in piano and organ, and as our inventory expanded, so did our educational programs.

Now, at our state of the art studios, students of all ages from infant to seniors can engage in a wide variety of private lessons and group classes. We offer educational opportunities for all instruments, songwriters, theatrical arts and vocalists.

As we believe that a student’s learning takes place both in the classroom and during home study, we offer a 12-week free lesson program for parents in the same instrument as their student, to better help them with assisting with their child’s learning.

Black Hills Studios of the Arts is a company of the community, and provides affordable outreach music and theater programs for private schools and organizations in the Rapid City area.

Our Home School Program of The Arts is a fully academic program housed within our studios and theater to provide local homeschool students the opportunity to learn music and theater, make new friends and enjoy a vast array of creative and performance opportunities.

Partnered with innovative curriculum, instrument and technology companies, we host and outreach creative programs, many of which are free, for our community musicians of all ages.

As we believe in education, we so believe in our educators. Our staff of highly educated and experienced instructors are leaders in their fields. They are passionate about providing educational excellence and inspiring each and every student.
