The well-trained tone teachers at the American School of Music enlighten aspiring musicians with custom private lessons in a variety of instruments. During a 30-minute lesson, music mavens—many of them professional musicians or degree-holding music educators—can teach a 10-year-old his or her first guitar chords, or help an experienced adult drummer hammer out the difficult timpani solo from The Odd Couple’s theme. Before the lesson, administrative staff gathers information about each student’s goals, experience level, and preferred musical style so that instructors can tailor the experience to his or her needs. Beginning singers and instrumentalists will also receive a complimentary lesson book whose sentient pages whisper words of encouragement during at-home practice sessions.

At Dave Simon's Rock School, dedicated instructors help students develop musical abilities through programs centered on collaboration and live performance. In addition to private lessons, the school provides a venue for kids to cultivate skills and build confidence using the same cooperative methods that professional bands use when persuading the tour-bus driver to stop for tacos. Working together according to their experience level and skill, bands apply musical theory to perfect their sound among their ensemble, eventually presenting live shows and recording a CD in the facility's state-of-the-art studio.
Scales Music's legion of experienced instructors teaches aspiring strummers the fundaments of acoustic guitar in a cozy, encouraging environment during 45-minute group lessons. Open to the young, the young at heart, and the incredibly old, each lesson guides a troop of four–six string pluckers through the basic principles of music theory and a musical rendition of Einstein's theory of relativity. After the opening session, rock 'n' roll undergrads begin learning how to play songs together. Spacious lesson rooms provide players with space to groove and free high-speed Internet access allows parents to browse the web. Although not included with today's Groupon, students can choose from a selection of rental guitars to take home for further practice with family bands led by golden-retriever sopranos.
