With accolades from Moffly Media readers as Best Music Lessons and Instruments in 2009, Creative Music Center's experienced staff schools patrons in music making and populates the shop's shelves with a slew of song-spawning accessories. Accouterments such as the Rico pack of three alto-saxophone reeds ($12.50) and the Herco composite clarinet-maintenance kit ($17.95) keep woodwinds properly trilling. Folks can woo passersby with a sweet, mellow melody on the Kala mahogany concert ukulele ($98) or the versatile Harmon Triple Play trumpet mute, which shape-shifts to silence sounds with a straight mute, cup mute, and plunger mute ($59.95).
Those who already own an instrument can take in tune tutelage from Creative Music Center's music mavens, who are armed with myriad teaching styles. The staffers, many of whom still rock the socks off most crowds, remain committed to customizing each lesson to the learner's needs, learning style, and zodiac sign.
Creative Music Center
Creative Music Center’s skilled teachers have been nurturing musical talent in students of all ages and skill levels for nearly three decades, earning recognition for their efforts with a Best Music Lessons and Instruments award from Moffly Media readers in 2009. They achieve this high level of instruction by adapting their teaching styles to the needs of each pupil rather than insisting that everyone play Mozart or eat sheet music for breakfast. While private lessons prep students to play everything from the viola to the trombone, teachers also foster camaraderie through group lessons for piano and guitar. Students who haven’t hollowed out a baguette to make their own French horn can rent or buy an instrument from the center, which stocks brands such as Yamaha and Fender.
