Individual Music Lessons

We offer lessons on all instruments (except for bagpipes and organ) and voice for all ages.

Your Child’s Musical Journey

Our music lessons and classes grow with your kiddo from birth to… forever!

Make Music With Us

Dust off your trumpet, sing with friends, play with jazz musicians, join a choir, and more. Play music with your community.

Music For the Young Ones

It’s proven: music education at any age provides numerous benefits — and it’s also tons of fun. We offer musical experiences for kids of all ages, even newborns! Just don’t blame us when you wake up to them practicing their violin early on Saturday morning.

Summer Camps and Classes for Kids

Summer should be all about fun in the sun, pool parties, and violin lessons. Slather up that sunscreen and see what musical hijinx we’re diving into this summer.

Music Lessons and Classes For Adults

Do you have a French horn gathering dust in your closet? Have you always felt drawn to the piano but have never tried a lesson? No matter your level of musical experience, you’re in the right place. Join a band, sing in a choir, or start those piano lessons today!
