Our experienced teachers understand that a students first lessons are the most important they will ever have. Our goal is to provide the most enjoyable introduction to music possible.

We teach just one student at a time in order to focus solely on each students interests and abilities. We try to teach favorite songs from the very first lesson. From there, we focus on the techniques and repertoire of each students own favorite styles, and offer encouragement and preparation to begin playing music socially at our group sessions and recitals.

Our teachers specialize in a very wide variety of music, from traditional folk and classical to modern rock.

Lesson prices are $30 or $35 per half hour, varying by teachers experience. Theres a one-time registration fee of $25 per family.
