All Ages

We welcome and encourage students of all generations, because we know that age doesn’t define one’s ability to appreciate and learn music. Whether you’re seeking lessons for your child, or recently retired and ready to learn that instrument you’ve always wanted to play, we truly believe you belong here. It’s all about desire!

Solo Lessons

Solo lessons allow you to learn at your own pace and provide you with in-depth knowledge on different genres of music. This means that your interests drive your experience and development of your skillset. By working with you one-on-one, your instructor can help you set and attain your personal goals.

Group Lessons

Group lessons offer a fun and inspiring dynamic – a place to share passions, ideas, and make new friends. In this context, you immerse yourself in a collaborative, team-like environment where learning comes not just from instructors but from your peers as well.

BANDS

Our all-ages Band Program adds elements of teamwork and collaboration into music instruction.

Teaching through mentorship

Although we want you to develop musically, what’s most important to us is that you become the very best versions of yourself. We do this by walking side by side with you. We want you to figure out who you want to be, and where you want to take this journey while you’re here with us.

We open our doors to everyone – from the retired person finally taking the time to learn that instrument they’ve always want to learn, to the child struggling to focus in school.

One thing’s for certain: We’ve got something special and we know once you walk through our doors you’ll agree.
