Are your lessons only for kids?

No!  We have many adult students that take lessons.  Whether you are a total beginner or you’re looking to brush up on an instrument you played many years ago, we will create the perfect lesson plan for you.  It’s never too late to experience the joy of learning an instrument!

Do you teach private or group lessons?

We offer both!  Although most of our lessons are 1 on 1, we do also offer several group classes.  Check out the classes page for more info!

How long of a lesson should I take?

Most new students take 30 minute weekly lessons.  However, after you’ve got the basics under your belt, you may want to increase your lesson time to allow for greater discussion on more advanced topics.  Regardless, you will still leave each lesson with plenty of material to work on each week.

Do you offer recitals?

Yes!  We put on 2 recitals per year where students can showcase their talents and abilities.  Nothing beats a live performance for your family and friends!
