Music Together cultivates a warm, welcoming community of children and their adult counterparts in 45-minute music classes, which introduce developing brains to grooveable tunes with an accommodating schedule. A friendly instructor trained in teaching, music, and impersonating tubas leads up to 12 Beatles-in-training through structured musical explorations, helping little ones to test out rhythms on drums, keep time on triangles, and belt out songs. Newborns to 4-year-olds co-mingle in the same classes, creating an open environment in which younger tykes mimic social skills and musical talents modeled by the older children. Parents and guardians participate in the classes, sitting cross-legged on the floor with their mellifluous youngster, socializing with other adults and intermittently showing off their yodeling skills.
For more than 50 years, Allegro Music has been fostering fellowship among area musicians of all ages. The shop, which is open seven days a week, has all the provisions for a successful musical journey. Lessons with experienced instructors help students sharpen their skills. There's classical and modern sheet music aplenty, and staff can track down a composer or piece you can't find in-house. The store’s collection of brand-name instruments includes guitars, keyboards, and band instruments, as well as nontraditional percussion instruments such as congas and djembes. And they can outfit drummers with customizable drums from Mapex that feature fearsome orange alligator skin or your favorite Cathy cartoon strip. When instruments start to squeak, repair-shop manager Gabe Eaton nurses them back to health along with fellow technicians Brian Hart and Joel Ryan.
Where Music Begins is an all inclusive music academy offering a variety of private and group instrumental lessons for students of all ages.
Each of the guitar coaches at American Guitar Academy are certified in the school’s signature teaching method. Developed over 25 years, this house-honed instruction technique incorporates scientific research to help fingers learn to shred frets up to eight times faster than alternative methods. During private half-hour lessons, instructors guide budding rock stars aged 4 years and up through the basics of strumming chords and seamlessly stitching together riffs. These comprehensive lessons on classical, electric, or acoustic guitars are offered once a week with a live instructor or online and guarantee that students will be playing their favorite music within six months of training. Students may begin lessons without owning a guitar, but are encouraged to gain access to one quickly for mastering scales and the ability to solo with their teeth.
Musically Minded Academy is a non-profit music school and community arts center located in Rockridge, CA.
Our core mission is to provide high quality music education, to host concerts and other arts-related education programs, and to act as a haven for musicians and music lovers in the greater East Bay Area.
In the acoustically-treated practice studios that fill their brand-new facility, Music Time Academy’s instructors arm students as young as five years with the rent-to-own flutes, trumpets, or violins they need to tangle with any musical challenge that might cross their paths. The school’s curriculum is not limited to juvenile jongleurs, with students of virtually any age brushing up on their banjo, mandolin, piano, bass, or vocal abilities during lessons calibrated to the tastes of each pupil.
This modularity is made possible through the diverse roster of instructors, whose ranks include classical ensemble guitarists, rock 'n' roll ukulele players, effortlessly controlled jazz trumpeters, and a stray punk-druid mandolin player from Brighton, England. These eager teachers are equipped to foster virtually any sort of musical interest, whether students wish to show off in regularly scheduled recitals, find a friendly place to hone their skills, or compose a national anthem for their Dungeons and Dragons setting.

Mexico City native Ricardo T?llez began dancing when he was 12, shimmying his way through styles such as cumbia and guaracha. In 1995, he packed up his dancing shoes and moved to the Bay area, accelerating his salsa study not only by studying under Gabriel Romero, but also by trying out his footwork in clubs. Armed with a passion for dance, Ricardo founded RicaSalsa Dance Company in 1999 to share his love of the art. Today, he and dance partner Tianne Frias?with whom he placed third in the World Latin Dance Cup?teach private lessons and group classes that impart new and advanced dancers with the steps, partnership skills, and medallions filled with glowworms needed to light up the floor. By focusing on social dance skills and the ability to follow the rhythm, they help their students adapt easily to different songs and settings.

Mastering an instrument takes dedication, practice, and time, although it also helps to receive some professional guidance along the way. At Exploring Music, the instructors help budding musicians improve by providing personalized direction based on each individual's skill level and musical aspirations. Private and group lessons meet in practice studios that have been insulated and reinforced for sound reduction, helping students to fully concentrate on mastering their instrument of choice, be it the guitar, the violin, the piano, the saxophone, or the five-disc CD changer.
Inside this newly opened salon, a red wall provides an eye-catching backdrop to a host of Paul Mitchell shampoos, styling gels, and color formulas.

After finishing her classical education in Moscow, piano player Elena Orduyan switched from student to teacher. For more than a decade, she’s taught the ivory-tickling arts to youths and adults alike, sending students off to institutions like Juilliard with skills she helped them hone. She tailors each lesson to her individual students, creating customized lesson books for every player and curating her own lesson materials by mixing and matching texts from a variety of publishers and schools of thought. Her curricula extend past key-tapping: beginners also pick up the basics of music theory, and intermediate-level musicians learn to use music software. Orduyan even helps young kids along with color-coded markers and stickers. Never content to rest on her musical laurels, she also furthers her own education by attending annual music-teaching conferences and events.
