OUR PRIVATE CLASSES
We teach a variety of guitar styles on acoustic or electric. Whether our students are starting from scratch or have songs prepared to practice, we can help you grow by exploring different genres to help develop different skills.
Students will get the chance to learn fundamentals and theory while learning how to play their favorite songs. Like guitar, piano lessons are adapted from student to student to fit their learning style and interests.
From beginning voice lessons to professional vocal coaching, students will learn breathing techniques, pitch production, projection, stage presence and microphone techniques, all while forming a great repertoire of songs.
Drum students will practice basic skills, learn popular drum beats, read rhythms accurately and play to their favorite songs. For drum students looking to play to live music, Rock Ensemble is recommended.
Not only is Ukulele a wonderful life-long instrument, it is also a great way to get into playing an instrument for the first time. Especially for youngsters interested in eventually playing guitar. All ages can learn to play and sing with Ukulele.

We offer classes in specific instruments of all kinds, from sax to mandolin, flute to upright bass.
Songwriting takes practice. We offer individual and group songwriting classes and provide yearly opportunities for students to show their work.
