Lessons at Music & Families

Music & Families’ Teaching Studio is made up of high‐quality teachers that are passionate about music and about teaching. All our teachers have years of experience playing, performing and teaching their instruments.

We have a family‐friendly atmosphere for students to come and learn. Families appreciate being able to bring several children in for lessons at the same place and time. We have a $5 discount for each additional family member that signs up for lessons. All of our teachers are willing to teach an entire family at a time, as well. This usually requires an hour‐long lesson, and costs are adjusted accordingly.

Recitals are given by the individual teachers, as well as store‐wide recitals nearly monthly, in our recital room.

Lessons at Music & Families are for a half‐hour private lesson one time a week, unless otherwise specified (or requested). We occasionally hold classes in music theory, history, and all kinds of other family-friendly subjects. Stay tuned to this page or our Facebook page for more information as these come up.
