  1. What will I learn at my lesson?
    Each lesson is individualized to meet the needs of each student. You will learn note reading, technique, and music theory. With these skills, you will be able to not only play the music in your lesson book, but your favorite music too. Students are welcomed to bring their band music to their lesson.
  2. What styles of music are taught?
    While young students tend to enjoy music from their favorite movies and TV shows and adults gravitate to the music they listened to as teens, there is something for everyone. From classical, rock, hymns, and country; you will use your skills to play your favorite tunes and learn new music.
  3. Is the teacher qualified?
    Our teachers have either college training or professional performance experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn.
  4. Can I play in a recital?
    Yes! One of the goals of a musician is to play for other people. Although recital performance is encouraged, it is an optional event. You will select the music you will play and have the option of performing with the instructor, with other students, or solo.
  5. What else can I learn?
