The Music Loft Online requires a Trial Lesson for every student to help evaluate the following:
1. If the student is young, is he/she ready to learn?
2. Is the teacher a good match for the student?
3. What kind of learning style does the musician work best with? Relaxed, structured, formal?
4. What are the goals of the individual?
5. Assess technology recommendations
6. Recommended lesson length.
The Trial Lesson fee is $39.00 However, should you decide to book lessons (which we hope you do!), the $39.00 fee will be credited to your first month of tuition. We accept online credit or debit payments only. Trial lessons may not be rescheduled or refunded.

Our high-impact programs are designed to suit a variety of skill levels and interests.

Our students are our top priority. Inspiring musical creativity in every student--from beginners to advanced artists--is what we do best. We are a premiere team of passionate music professionals dedicated to the success of our students, creating a culture of excellence. A majority of our faculty possess advanced degrees and years of experience.
A complete 8-week semester is $360, and if beginning mid-semester, tuition will be prorated based on when you start. We require automatic billing to a credit/debit card, with payments set up monthly in the amount of $180. There is a one-time registration fee of $25.00 per family.
The qualifications of the teacher and the willingness of the student are the essential elements in this equation. Be sure to take an Trial Lesson with the teacher you are considering before commiting to study with that person. This will give you an idea if that teacher and his/her style of teaching are right for you.
Our purpose in teaching is the success of our students. We want you to reach your full personal and musical potential.
Here are some frequently asked questions:
How long will it take me to learn to play? This is a difficult question to answer - consider this: 1) Like any new skill, students will progress on their instruments according to the amount of time they are able to spend practicing; 2) Anyone can make significant progress quickly with the help of an inspiring instructor.
Can adults learn to play an instrument? ABSOLUTELY! With the help of trained educators, patience, and practice, playing an instrument is not only attainable but with it, comes the reward of personal achievement and satisfaction. There are several benefits for adults learning to play an instrument. Playing an instrument relieves stress, stimulates memory, and possibly helps with specific joint ailments. Learning musical skills and techniques requires using mental faculties very specifically to enhance and stimulate mind and motor capabilities.
What are the benefits of private lessons? Private instruction is the best way for anyone to learn to play an instrument. The focus is on the student's education, growth, and development not only as a musician, but as an individual as well. The Music Loft faculty crafts individual lessons around the learning style of each student in order to guide you in becoming a well-rounded, confident musician.
