Types of Lessons

We offer the following types of lessons (all skill levels, all ages) in virtually any genre:

Our Advantages

Learning to play music can be an amazing, life-changing experience. That's why we've designed our studios to be creative, comfortable places for learning and growing. Our fully-engaging lesson program provides a solid academic foundation and at the same time, encourages students to express themselves through music and helps them discover their inner artist.

Our Studios

Designed to be comfortable and musician-friendly, our studios are acoustically treated and stocked with state-of-the-art equipment to help you sound your best. Clean, well-lit lesson spaces have full-glass doors, creating an open atmosphere that facilitates engaging with other musicians and encourages a sense of community. And, since our studios are housed within our stores, you have access to our retail area for gear, incidentals, repairs and service—all under one roof.

We have studio locations throughout the country. Contact your local store for details.

Our Instructors

Our dedicated instructors are fully screened, with multiple years of experience in music instruction. They are truly experts in the instruments they teach, often with credentials from highly esteemed schools of music. With a positive, nurturing attitude, they motivate and inspire students to reach their goals.
