Our classes are designed with community and friendships in mind as a goal. You can take lessons anywhere. Although you can’t find conservatory trained or qualified educators just anywhere. But while private lessons are an excellent way to grow as a musician, apart from learning in a group, like the group class, ensemble, and lab formats that we offer—you could be missing out big!
Learning the discipline of music and making music are so much more than just learning to read music, interpret rhythms, and play the right notes and chords with beauty and expression. Oh, we will teach you all those for sure. We will take you as deep as you want to go in them, maybe even deeper!
But we all realize that some of the most profound and important relationships that we’ve ever had in life are those we made through a band we played in, a choir we sang in, a group we toured with, etc. And we want you to have that too! This is one important reason our focus is on group classes: so you can have both the detailed and specific, individualized attention of a private lesson, and the community and team environment of a group.
We love people. We love seeing them get inspired, we love seeing them break a barrier or conquered a challenge. We love it when they fall in love with music.
With more than seven trained, seasoned, and professional musician-educators on faculty, our focus is on quality, relational, and thorough education to real people, not numbers. We keep our class sizes small for lots of hands on, fun, and relational music making and teaching. We offer music instruction in band instruments (such as trumpet, trombone, saxophone, and clarinet), percussion (drums and mallets), piano, voice, and guitar. TIA faculty are graduates from excellent programs at schools like Berklee College of Music, the number one music school in the world, Western Washington University, a top ten music college in Washington state, and The University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory of Music, one of the top ten music programs in the country.
