We specialize in being a one stop shop for all your musical needs, band & orchestral repair, fretted instrument & electronic repair, lessons and much much more!
Offering classes for adults and kids seven and up, the Academy of Fine Arts is a non-profit organization that encourages an appreciation of music with a heartfelt love of the instrument. Putting drumsticks in empty hands, flutes to pursed lips, and a spring to the voice's step are great ways to foster creativity and self-expression, increase spatial intelligence, and spicy up the dull world of crickets. Classes are available for a slew of instruments including guitar, piano, violin, voice, and many woodwinds and brass. Those distrustful of shredding on an instrument they didn't have a hand in making will be interested in the Build a Guitar lessons.
Gymboree offers a bevy of baby-engaging classes in which parents and wee ones work together to build tots' creativity and encourage development through play. Weekly classes are available for every age from the freshly born sapling to the 5-years-young wise wanderer. This deal includes rhythm-building music classes, body-building sport classes, imagination-expanding art classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn. The month-long membership allows you to take one class per week.
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.
At Music Matters, each instructor is a highly qualified, professional musician. In fully equipped studios and practice rooms, they lead private lessons with custom instruction for more than 15 instruments, including the piano, guitar, drums, voice, violin, and most orchestral instruments. They also inspire the next generation of modern Mozarts with special programs such as the Rock Band 101 class, which teaches students how to rehearse with a band and play with other students. Rock Band 101 includes hands-on experience playing songs from each decade beginning with the 1960s, and teachers also encourage students to write and develop their own songs.
At Howren Piano Studio, Miss Howren teaches piano in a supportive environment that favors group lessons and one-on-one instruction alike. Group lessons let pupils learn together by taking turns playing songs. This allows for more camaraderie and multiple perspectives on piano techniques. Private lessons are also very effective and available, and Miss Howren encourages parents to be present for kids’ lessons so that they can assist during practice at home. Both private and group lessons are available for all ages.
