Our professional, full-time guitar teachers offer guitar lessons for beginners to advanced guitarists. Beginner Guitar Lessons can help new musicians get started on the right foot and avoid developing bad habit while advanced guitarists can learn new techniques, get ideas, or improve their skills in specific problem areas.

Our vocal coaches aim to ensure good vocal health in singers of all ages and will work with students on an individualized basis to develop good habits early on. Beginner singing lessons will usually include a piano, ukulele, or guitar element to help students create context for their voice and understand the role of an accompanist. Advanced singers can get expert insight to improve their tone, control, flexibility, and support.

Drums Close Up
Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort while reinforcing the rudimentary concepts the give drummers great time, technique, and control.

Our piano lessons cover sight-reading, music theory, rhythm, technique, ear training and more. Lessons are tailored to each students ability and style preference.

Ukulele Lessons:

The Ukulele is a school favorite for entry level children through adults. The ukulele can be as beautiful and interesting as any other instrument, but its small size and soft strings make it the ideal choice for delicate hands. The chord shapes learned on the ukulele transfer easily to the guitar, making it an excellent option for young aspiring guitarists.


Bass Guitar Close Up

Our bass instructors have helped many students construct strong bass lines, develop a great sound, and relax into a groove. We cover styles and techniques from Larry Graham's funky thumb to Paul McCartney's melodic walk. The Bass Guitar lessons also cover slap bass, fretless bass, rhythm and groove, music theory, technique and reading.
