Tony Natalizio caters to young students and busy professionals with relaxed, effective guitar lessons that help music lovers achieve their goals of playing guitar. Tony instructs hopeful virtuosos in the sacred art of the axe over the course of two 45-minute lessons tailored to the individual based on music knowledge and experience performing in front of sold-out arenas, often known as bathroom mirrors. Explore the vast universe of strumming styles, including classical, rock, jazz, and folk. Younger string-strummers start out reading music and can quickly move on to shredding solos. More advanced students can learn concepts and techniques based on the style of music they like to play. Tony is experienced in working with children as young as 6 years old.

Music instructor Ellane draws on a bachelor's degree in music education and an North Carolina teacher's license in music K–12 to familiarize children with the world of music. In her Kindermusik classes, she works with newborns, infants, and toddlers as well as children as old as 7, using age-appropriate exercises to engage and interest them. Cuddle and Bounce classes help to strengthen bonds between parents and babies, while classes for first-graders focus on teaching kids to read and compose music on the dulcimer. Although Ellane's Kindermusik classes are geared toward children, she has experience teaching students of all ages.
Miriam Catron discovered a way to combine her love of music and athleticism—in 1997, she created Infuzion, a family-friendly center dedicated to art in all its aspects that furnishes interactive opportunities in music, theater, dance, and martial arts. Miriam selects enthusiastic and impeccably trained teachers to help students to thrive in their chosen field of study, whether they’re wielding a viola, executing a high kick, or performing a monologue on the secret lives of monologists. To round out the center's skill-instilling potential, a fitness studio hones able bodies with its arsenal of workout machines and spacious aerobics rooms that pulsate with a thunderous sound system to give soul shakers a reason to boogie outside one’s bedroom confines.
A classically trained pianist and organist with more than 35 years of experience, Fran Brar passes her musical wisdom onto students during individual and group piano lessons.

In 2003, String Theory’s owner and primary instructor, Luke Currie, earned a bachelor of arts degree in film scoring from Boston’s Berklee College of Music. His knack for arranging notes and effectively setting the tone of movie scenes later earned him a residency at the Performing Arts Institute of Virginia, where he further honed his skills in composition. By 2009, Currie’s growing passion for teaching music prompted him to open String Theory Music Lessons, an informal institute for aspiring musicians of all ages and skill levels to learn how to compose melodies, sight-read chord charts, and stimulate plant growth using their guitars, basses, or other instruments.
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."
