We offer private lessons in those instruments from the best teachers around in guitar, violin, piano, voice, and ukulele. These teachers have been hand selected by us for not only their amazing musicianship, but also their knowledge of teaching young children.

On top of that, our teachers have all kinds of advanced degrees and perform in groups and as soloists all around town. ... View Profile
