Staffed by experienced local musicians and DJs, One Sound Music Academy instructs tune-crafters of all disciplines. Brass, woodwind, string, percussion, and voice lessons hone skills for players of all ages and skill levels. The academy’s traditional music programs take their cues from the Maryland state music curriculum, and courses can culminate in student recitals. Group and private DJ lessons cover topics such as music theory, genre mixing, and blending, teaching aspiring jockeys how to mix floor-filling party anthems from vinyl or CDs.
The Music Workshop has been providing Baltimore with exceptional music instruction since 1993.
The diverse Music Workshop staff offers private lessons in piano, guitar, bass, drums, voice, violin, sax, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, and flute.
We are located on York road with plenty of private parking.
Alex Layne, a graduate of the illustrious Peabody Institute, edifies aspiring shredders of all ages with guitar-playing prowess he purloined from members of punk group Reptile House and other musicians such as Felicia Carter and Antony West. During two 30- or 45-minute lessons, students can perfect their plucking on an electric, acoustic, or inflatable axe as Alex summons more than 20 years of teaching know-how to impart basic, intermediate, or advanced skills. Customized to each pupil’s individual aptitude, sessions can cover fundamentals that include open chords and strumming techniques, or such advanced talents as mastering pentatonic scales and upstaging lead singers. Today’s Groupon may also be redeemed for online lessons via Skype, allowing Alex the ability to zoom in on complicated chords.
As a kid-centric music venue, Drool of Rock doesn't just draw in local musicians—it creates them. The passionate instructors lead kids aged 2–5 in a curriculum of age-appropriate activities with a musical bent, including live performances and basic instrument education. During summer camps, kids aged 2–10 romp through the 6,000-square-foot center or play games in the 2,500-square-foot outdoor play area. On the weekends, local kids' musicians take to the stage for interactive performances, which are often free or priced in the currency of Candyland.
Let There Be Rock School disproves the cynical idiom, "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach." with instructors who are working rock musicians. All of them are well-versed in performance and eager to coach young, aspiring stars. During weekly one-on-one lessons, they help students with their playing and stage presence, preparing them for the school's version of a recital: a concert at a local music venue.
Their mentorship is only one part of the curriculum, however. After being sorted into a band, students rehearse and jam with their teammates under the guidance of a band manager. When they aren't working on their songs, they retire to the Rock Lounge, where members can watch movies and study Pete Townshend's windmill technique in super slow-motion.
Kids can sign up for one of two Let There Be Rock School programs. The All Access Lesson Program is meant for beginning musicians, and familiarizes them with an instrument. More advanced students enroll in the VIP All Access Performance program, which focuses on music theory and includes band practice.
