Irvine School Of Music Private & group lessons in Irvine, CA
Dedicated to providing the finest and most comprehensive music lessons in Orange County, including jazz and pop & classical piano, violin, guitar, saxophone, harp, voice, flute, clarinet, and preschool classes for children ages 3-5. We also offer group classes for children's choir, theory, composition, and songwriting.
We empower students with tools so their musical voices can shine, and indoing so, help them develop problem-solving skills for life. While music-making is at the heart of the lesson, it is always the individual needs of each student - whether a five-year old beginner, an adult returning to the instrument, or budding artist - that become the focal point of instruction. We proudly teach students of any age and ability and are committed to providing the highest quality of instruction in a variety of musical styles, including Classical, Jazz, and Pop.

Products and Services
We offer a wide variety of drum and percussion lessons. Most of our students learn on a drum kit. We typically do not start drum lessons before age 8 as students need to be able to reach both the pedal and the cymbals. We do have some younger students but suggest they come in for a trial drum lesson to see if they are big enough to get started.
The Irvine School of Music offers piano lessons for students of all ages and abilities from beginners to very advanced students. For all students, special attention is paid to developing a strong foundation in ergonomic technique and ease of playing, the building blocks of a virtuosic keyboard technique. Auxiliary skills such as ear-training, sight-reading, and theory are simultaneously developed in order to create a comprehensive skill set that enables the student to play the style of music of his or her choice.
Students in our vocal program sing all kinds of music, from their favorite artists to classical arias. Instruction may be in a wide variety of styles or tailored towards the student's style of choice. Irvine School of Music voice teachers all have a university degree in music specializing in voice and sing everything from pop and jazz to opera. Our teachers all have performance backgrounds as well. Just a sample of what a student will learn in singing lessons includes how to breathe properly, how to increase their range, proper pitch, how to project and stage presence.
Include acoustic, electric and bass guitar. Our guitar faculty is comprised of versatile musicians who can instruct students in everything from rock to jazz, classical to pop, Spanish to chording.

Our string program currently includes private instruction on violin. Our private violin lessons start as young as age 4 and can be taught in the Suzuki method, traditional method, or combination of both.

Cameron's greatest gift was picking the right teacher

My son had asked to play violin for a while and I contacted the Irvine School of Music upon a friend's recommendation. Cameron was very informative. He even gave my son a piano lesson in an effort to help ensure that he truly wanted to learn violin. Cameron also helped us find a great rental place for our violin with an option to purchase it. Cameron's greatest gift was picking the right teacher, Matt, for our son

I have been enjoying my own lessons with Pheaross very much. His knowledge of music is astounding, and in addition to piano, we are working on music theory which has helped me tremendously in my playing. Although I cannot practice as much as I would like because of the demands of my job and motherhood, Pheaross is understanding and never makes me feel guilty. He keeps piano fun, which is exactly what I think it should be
