At Kindermusik with Yulia, the staff knows that to a young, developing mind, learning an instrument means much more than exploring a new hobby. The creative playing helps the brain to create important connections and stimulate the ability to make creative decisions. Listening to music increases a child's sound discrimination, and moving develops body awareness and spatial relationships. Music lessons for children aged 0–7 help develop the brain the child will grow into. The expert music instructor creates age-appropriate lessons around different themes such as "family" or "colors and shapes of the farm."

Turning Pointe Music & Dance is like a garden for artistic talents. Their instructors start cultivating dance students when they're just 3 years old, and as they progress, the fledgling dancers move on to more and more advanced techniques. The curriculum includes a four-level pre-professional program with technique classes that cover the finer points required of a well-rounded dancer. Turning Pointe Music & Dance's experts also teach music, and they work with adults during dance and fitness classes, such as Pilates.
A pianist since age 9, Nathan Hughes' instrumental repertoire has since grown to include guitar and bass. For more than 15 years, he's showcased his skills on all three with gigs in bands of nearly every genre, from blues to reggae. But when he's not on stage, Nathan draws upon 13-plus years of music teaching experience during lessons at his eponymous studio.
Available to students of all ages and skill levels, Nathan's sessions are rooted in core musical concepts and skills, such as theory and sight-reading. Beyond that, however, every lesson is customized to each student's interests, whether it's playing ragtime piano or performing an ear-splitting guitar solo with only their mind. Along with one-on-one lessons in his studio, Nathan happily works with students over Skype or other video conferencing software.
The faculty members at the School of Rock believe that immersion is the best way to learn any new skill, which is why they don’t just teach students how to traverse the notes and rhythms of guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals in isolation. In addition to teaching students the technical skills during one-on-one lessons, the professional music instructors push them to fuse their individual parts into songs during full band practices with fellow beginner rockers. This combination of one-on-one attention and cooperative group learning helps kids of all skill levels hone their craft while overcoming common pitfalls such as stage fright or playing off-tempo. As kids learn to shred riffs, pound out drum solos, and summon Ronnie James Dio by hitting the correct vibrato atop a silver mountain, the classes build their confidence and kick-start a lifetime of loving rock 'n' roll.
Instructors teach children and adults how to strum, pluck, and tap music out of their instruments during private and group lessons. In students' homes or at the school, they learn to juice notes from guitars, pianos, violins, banjos, mandolins, or their own vocal chords. Students needn't own their own instruments—they can rent one from the school if they promise to feed it regularly and prune the sheet music it sprouts. All skill levels are welcome, and the school also has a program for students with special needs. To ensure teachers are ready to start lessons, the school conducts thorough background checks and gives out references upon request.
