Classes and Teachers

Our unique model is based on one-on-one music instruction. As such, we match students with qualified teachers based on the student’s class of preference and their schedule. Learn more about the various classes we offer by choosing one of the buttons above or simply by scrolling below. You will also find a list of our teachers here. You can read bios for each instructor by clicking on their photos. Feel free to let us know if you have a certain teacher preference when you contact us and we will do our best to match you with your chosen instructor.

Piano

We think 6-7 years of age is the youngest that children can start private piano lessons. At this age children have begun to develop longer attention spans, can retain material with ease, and have gained more physical finger dexterity.

Guitar

8-9 years of age is the earliest we recommend for guitar, and 10 years of age for bass guitar. Guitar and electric bass require that the left hand of the student apply direct pressure to the strings of the instrument in order to produce a clear sound. Children under this age may lack the hand strength to accomplish this task.

Bass

10 years of age is the earliest we recommend for bass guitar. Electric bass requires that the left hand of the student apply direct pressure to the strings of the instrument in order to produce a clear sound. Electric bass has very large, metal strings. Children under this age may lack the hand strength to accomplish this task.

Drums

Generally, a good time to get started is between 8-9 years of age. Children will have developed the physical coordination required to move their limbs in different directions with purpose at the same time. They also have the mental capacity to begin to understand syncopated rhythms and patterns.

Cello

A good age to get started on cello is between 8-9 years. At this age children have begun to develop longer attention spans, can retain material with ease, and have gained the stature to hold this instrument with the proper technique.

Voice

For children we recommend starting between ages 8-9 years of age. Voice lessons with children will not be taught in the same way as lessons with adults. Our vocal teachers exercise great care with children to prevent injury to growing vocal chords. Teachers will also keep songs age appropriate.
