Piano & Keyboard

Music is essential to our lives. Music has the ability to make a person feel happy, sad, anxious, confident, and a number of other things. Thus, music education is equally important. Studies prove that a child’s brain develops closer to its full potential when music lessons are a part of its education. A child is never too young to be introduced to music.

Learning piano teaches an incredible amount of hand-eye coordination. There is no doubt that piano is one of the most popular instruments in the world, as well as has the broadest range of any instrument. It can be played solo or used for accompaniment with any other instrument.

We believe music should be fun and expressive. We offer personalized teaching styles that encourage our students’ development of musicianship, individuality, and love for music. Our instructors have a unique approach for each student. You or your child will continue to receive the highest level of music education available here.

People of all ages can play piano. Why not start you or your child’s music education with a piano lesson from us? Piano lessons can be something you or your child can look forward to, feel good about, and reward yourself with.

Drum Lessons

Drums are a lot of fun to play and just about every rock/pop band needs them. Drummers are in high demand. Did you know that you can start learning to play drums right away without even owning a drum set? If you are a complete beginner, there are a few things you can learn and practice without even having a drum set.

If you just recently decided to learn how to play drums, and don’t own a drum set yet, our instructor still will get you going to start on your quest to learn. To play drums you should have these things prepared: a pair of drumsticks, a practice pad, and a metronome. The first step is to learn how to hold drumsticks properly and play basic beats. You can start practicing by tapping your hands and feet on a tabletop and the floor. This can keep you occupied for a while, since there are a lot of things you can learn about rhythm and handling sticks.

After you’ve practiced with the pad for a while and are still think that drumming is for you, you can start shopping for a real drum set to play on. As you learn to play better, it is important to get a good drum set that’s fun to play on. If you’re having fun as you learn and play, it’s much easier to stick with it.

Voice Lessons

All of us have to sing at some point. People everywhere love to sing; the voice is an instrument we spend a lifetime learning to use. The voice can change pitch, timbre, and volume. Our vocal instructors will help you to learn how to sing better and improve your voice with voice exercises, tips and techniques. Students can expect to take quality lessons with us that are fun while helping each student reach their maximum potential!

Take voice lessons today from our voice instructor who loves singing! This should get you started on your way to becoming a great singer. Register online or call today to reserve a time slot that will work best for you and your family!

Violin Lessons

The violin is a special type of instrument. There are many peoples who simply love violin. Our violin instruction starts with learning the specific parts that make up this instrument, and how to handle it. For example, how to hold the violin correctly when playing. Students are taught how to store and care for their violin as well. It is reasonable to expect that a hardworking violin student can decently play the instrument in about a few months. Some students may need more time.

Viola Lessons

In comparison to the violin, the viola is bigger than the violin and has a richer, fuller, deeper sound. Also, there are fewer people who play viola. The viola needs bow confidence and strong fingers for a nice vibrato. The viola is a little heavier than the violin, but the weight becomes unnoticeable over time.

Cello Lessons

How is a cello different from the violin and viola? Apart from physical differences, the cello’s sound is very different from either violin or viola. The tone is much deeper than a violin or viola due to its larger body and thicker strings. Due to physical consideration, most players do not use their 5th (little) finger, as it is too weak to produce a reliable tone.

Guitar Lessons

Finding a good guitar instructor can be frustrating if you don’t know exactly what to look for. Good guitar instructors in particular can be hard to find, especially when a number of teachers tend to just teach songs without really educating on how to understand as well as play the instrument.

In our guitar lessons, you will learn: notation reading, rhythm, intervals, major key formula, Jazz theory, chord analysis, proper technique, improvising, and ear training. We offer private guitar lessons for all levels and styles of music, which work great for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students. Students can learn to play guitar in any style including blues, rock, jazz, classical, and country

Double Bass Lessons

The double bass (also called the string bass, upright bass, bass violin or contrabass) is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed stringed instrument in the violin family and the modern symphony orchestra. It is also used in jazz ensembles frequently – especially played pizzicato. It is not as loud as many other instruments due to its low range.

Keep in mind that performing on bass can be physically demanding because the strings are large and thick. Children are unable to start playing the instrument until their hand size and height allow them to play a 3/4-size model (the most commonly available size). The bass is usually discouraged for people with shorter arms and smaller hands due to the big note gaps and the thick strings. Due to physical consideration, most players do not use the 5th (little) finger, as it is too weak to produce a reliable tone.

Harp Lessons

When was the first time you saw or heard the harp? On a CD? At a wedding? A Reception? A Concert? Maybe on TV?

A lot of people feel almost a spiritual uplifting whenever they hear a harp; like the song of heaven had come to take away sorrow and fill our hearts with warmth and love. Music touches people right to their very souls, and harp music in particular speaks to us in ways nothing else can.

The harp is an instrument with many unique qualities. The most outstanding is the ability of the harp to produce a mellow, resonant tone. It is a very forgiving instrument for beginners because of the beautiful sound of the harp. “I had always wanted to play the harp” is a sentence we hear quite often. One should follow his or her dream. If it is something you’ve always wanted to do, DO IT!

Playing the harp is quite rewarding. It’s good for your body, mind and soul. If you’ve had a strong desire to take up harp for your personal enjoyment- even if you don’t pursue it professionally- you can do it now in our music store. If you love the sound of the harp, you’ll love to play it.

Contrary to popular belief, the harp is not a particularly expensive instrument and is not too difficult to learn. Small folk/ lever harps are a great place to begin! In our music store, you can start learning to play the harp right away without even owning a harp. Many harp students have started on a small rented harp. Until you are sure you or you child wants to pursue the instrument seriously, renting is usually the best option.

In our experience, kids just love the harp even if it may not be the main instrument they want to put all their focus on. Technique is taught little by little. Due to physical considerations, harp players do not use the 5th (little) finger, as it is too weak to produce a reliable tone. Students will take 30 minutes to one-hour private lessons each week and have the opportunity to participate in ensemble playing.

Like piano, the harp can be played solo, and also can be great accompaniment for many other instruments. Although previous piano training would be a big help to pick up the harp more quickly since both piano and harp music notation are very similar, no previous musical training is necessary for older children or adults to start learning the harp. No exceptional talent is needed, either.

We are very pleased to say that the rarity of harp literature is no longer an issue for people who’ve always wanted to play the harp in our area. Don’t wait another day! If you’ve always dreamt of playing the harp, contact us!!! Register online now or call today to reserve a time slot that will work best for you and your family!

Bass Guitar Lessons

The bass guitar (also called electric bass or simply bass). The bass guitar is similar in appearance and construction to an electric guitar, but with a longer neck and scale length, and four to six strings.

The bass guitar is in a lower register and is most frequently part of the rhythmical section of the music. Many genres of music incorporate bass leads and use it as a soloing instrument in many styles of music including jazz, funk, Latin, fusion, and in some rock and heavy metal styles.
Our bass guitar instruction offers private lessons for all levels and styles of music. Register online or call today to reserve a time slot that will work best for you and your family!

Mandolin Lessons

The Mandolin is a small lute like instrument with a typically pear-shaped body and a straight fretted neck. The mandolin is the soprano member of the mandolin family, as the violin is the soprano member of the violin family.

The mandolin can be one of the easiest instruments to learn when playing basic chords and melodies. There are only four courses of strings. Most of the open-position chords only require two fingers which you can learn with just a flat-pick. The melodies fall right into place because it’s tuned in fifths. It’s considered a melody instrument simply because the melodies are all easily within reach. It is a perfect instrument to start out with, without any background in music.

If would like to learn to play the Mandolin and if you are thinking of buying a mandolin, you will get recommendations from our instructors to help you compare and decide.

Ukuleles are a great first instrument for kids, especially those wanting to play guitar but have smaller hands. It has a quick learning curve & is exceptionally portable. Ukuleles come in 4 sizes: Soprano, Concert, Tenor, & Baritone.
Soprano ukes are most common & a great choice for first timers. In recent years, ukuleles have become more popular with artists like Bruno Mars, Jason Mraz, & Jake Shimabukuro.

Flute Lessons

The flute originally made of wood, is now made from silver or gold and is about 2 feet in length. The flute produces a sound that can be either soft and mellow or high and piercing. Many people are utterly in love with the sound and look of the flute.

Some think that learning the flute is easy, whereas others thing it is not. To make sure you use proper techniques playing the flute, avoiding bad playing habits, flute lessons are highly recommended.

Clarinet Lessons

The clarinet is single-reed (mouthpiece) woodwind instrument. It has become an indispensable instrument for every orchestra. In jazz, the clarinet is a very popular instrument. Many important compositions for clarinet recitals and chamber music have been written. The clarinet is a standard member of both orchestras and bands.

Mastering the instrument should not be the most important aspect of lessons. Learning how to play this instrument should primarily bring joy to the student. Let your children learn how to play a fantastic instrument: the clarinet! You never know where your clarinet lessons can lead you or your children.

Oboe Lessons

The oboe is double-reed (mouthpiece) woodwind instrument and is generally made of ebony. It consists of three sections; upper, lower and bell joints. The reed is carved according to the shape of the mouth. Professional oboe players spend many hours making their own reeds and reeds for their students. The oboe has a complex arrangement of metal key-work that makes the instrument heavy to hold. The keys cover holes in the body of the oboe, and make it possible to create different pitches.

You would be taught very early on how important proper breathing is. Therefore, your first few lessons will be concentrated on breathing properly; both inhaling and fully exhaling and playing a lot of long notes, concentrating on tone and note quality. Tuning, tone, and articulation, are just three of the issues that oboe players face daily.

The Oboe is probably one of the more difficult instruments to learn. However, the oboe is much more appreciated since there are fewer players available. Perhaps the ones who are saying it’s hard to learn have had less of an aptitude for the instrument than you will find yourself to have. It’s definitely not the sort of instrument that you could get away with teaching yourself.

Enjoy your oboe if you decide to start learning. It takes a lot of practice. It’s a frustratingly wonderful instrument. With the guidance and help from our instructors, they can help you with about anything you need to try to make it sing to you!

Trumpet Lessons

“Trumpet-the most brilliant and spectacular of all musical instruments.” The trumpet is a popular instrument, especially in marching bands, military bands, jazz ensembles and larger orchestras. The most famous trumpet players have all been tied to jazz music. However, the instrument has found its way into all fields of music.

The trumpet is loud and beautiful. You blow the trumpet though a cup mouth-piece and you produce the sound with your lips. All brass instruments are physically demanding. Playing the trumpet can and should be a passion. Is the trumpet hard to learn? If you love the sound it makes, and if you really want to learn how to play trumpet- does it mater how hard other people say it is? You might be pleasantly surprised to find it less difficult to start with than you had imagined.

Trombone Lessons

The trombone was developed in Burgundy as an improved model of the slide trumpet and was made in different sizes. The trombone was mainly used for music in churches and in chamber music, but later it gained importance again as it was used in military music.

It will be a small challenge to learn trombone because there is no definite pitch, but instead you move the slider to determine the pitch. You need to be prepared to put in a lot of work to learn the instrument. The more you put into it, the easier it will get. Our instructor will help you on all the techniques you would need to play trombone. We will teach you the positions on the slide, moving the slide to the right spot, and then listening closely to get it in tune.

Every musical instrument has it own uniqueness in sound and look. Give this instrument a go! Register online or call today to reserve a time slot that will work best for you and your family!

French Horn Lessons

The French horn, originating from bugles or hunting horns, is a brass instrument often used in orchestral music and arrangements. It has been incorporated into all fields of music, especially popular music. There is never an amateur orchestra/band that doesn’t need French horn players. It’s certainly a good instrument to play if you want to be able to join an ensemble easily at a relatively low standard of playing.

To play French horn, you will learn techniques from our instructor for to play this brass instrument which include how to hold the horn; form proper embouchure & and changing pitch using your lips; how to play glissando, staccato, and accent notes, slurring notes, legato tonguing; fingerings; adjust French horn intonation with slides, and much more. You will also get maintenance tips for your horn, as well as some basic guidelines for creating a practice routine.

Like the oboe, French horn is probably one of the more difficult wind instruments to learn. Students need to find help for those most challenging and yet rewarding of musical instruments.

Saxophone Lessons

Soprano Saxophone

In our saxophone learning program, from smallest (highest) to largest (lowest), there are: soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone.
The soprano saxophone is not as widely used as the alto and tenor saxophones. Nevertheless, it still comes in the top four as one of the most commonly used saxophones. The other is the baritone saxophone.

If you are a beginner, the soprano sax may not be the best instrument to learn on. It is generally considered to be one of the most difficult saxophones to learn and master. You’d be better off starting with an alto saxophone. But for more advanced players, if you have not given much thought to this instrument you certainly should. You will have lots of fun with it.


Tenor Saxophone

The tenor saxophone is one of the most widely used saxophones today. The other most often used is the alto saxophone. The baritone and soprano are also popular but in no way are they as popular as alto and tenor saxophones. Most times when people think of Jazz music, they think of the tenor sax. It is popularly believed to be the signature instrument of modern Jazz.

The tenor saxophone is very popular in ensembles such as marching band, concert band, jazz ensemble, and even symphony orchestras.


Alto Saxophone

Alto saxophones are the most popular in the saxophone family among classical performers and composers.  In fact most classical players focus mainly on the alto. Altos play a major role in concert, funk, jazz, pop, blues, and rock music.

Most students learn to play the saxophone on the alto. It is the saxophone of choice for many beginners. Many of them later switch to tenor. Many saxophonists have been known to double in success on alto and tenor. If you’re a student who wants to learn how to play saxophone, this is probably the way to go. Switching from alto to tenor is not difficult. Both instruments use the same fingerings. The tenor is larger than the alto saxophone, so a slightly larger mouthpiece, ligature, and reed are needed.


Baritone Saxophone

The baritone saxophone is one of the larger members of the saxophone family. It is bigger than the tenor saxophone and smaller than the bass. The instrument has a single reed similar to a clarinet and its fingering system is based on that of the oboe. It has an extra loop near the mouthpiece, helping to keep it at a height that is practical.

The baritone saxophone is one of the more common saxophones in today’s ensembles. The other three popular (smaller) members of the saxophone family are the alto, tenor, and soprano. But of the entire group, the tenor and alto are the most common.

Due to its exceptional weight, it is difficult to use the instrument in marching bands. The instrument is more popular in classical music than orchestral music. However, it has played a major role in concert bands, military bands and wind ensembles.

Harmonica Lessons

The harmonica is a simple instrument capable of producing a wide variety of sounds and it fits right in your pocket so you can take it anywhere. The good news is that it’s fairly easy to pick up and start playing. The instrument is inexpensive, easy to find, and you don’t need to know how to read music or have any musical experience.

Have you always wanted to play the Harmonica but have no idea where to begin or how to get your tongue to hit those right spots? Having someone show you different playing techniques or tell you if you’re playing a note properly can help improve your skills. Instruction is very helpful. If you need a harmonica instructor, as us for help!

The harmonica is a great instrument to learn. Register online or call today for help and to reserve a time slot that will work best for you and your family!
