Art lessons teach the essentials of composition and visual narrative, whereas music lessons include piano, guitar, and violin as well as standard voice lessons and a musical-theater program.
Nothing captures emotions quite like music. Whether it's the elation of "Ode to Joy" or the sorrow of "Adagio for Strings," music grabs ahold of the human experience and expresses it in a way that anyone can appreciate. The Williamsburg School of Music dedicates itself to sharing that experience with anyone who wants to create music. Its classes include private lessons in voice, guitar, piano, and orchestral instruments as well as rock-band experiences for kids aged 6–17. For very young children, Baby Rock with Craig Howe classes bring shakers, drums, and rhythm sticks into homes for a personal introduction to music. These classes involve rhythmic and tonal exercises and homework assignments that include banging on pots early in the morning.
For 22 years, Richmond Music Center has provided the Staten Island community with an outlet for lessons, equipment, and services for musicians of all ages.

The center also believes in and practices the healing properties of music via music-therapy lessons for children and adults with disabilities or illnesses. A large collection of instruments, sheet music, and other necessities are available in the center’s shop, as well as repair and tuning services.

For more than 15 years, multi-instrumentalist Abdo Ades has striven to instill his love of music into students of all skill levels. Through The Home Studio, which conducts lessons at students' abodes, Abdo has helped pupils lay down funky bass riffs and rock out with drum fills. Though versed in rhythm instruments, his musical focus remains piano and guitar, whose fundamentals he teaches through a blend of classical, jazz, and rock styles. After reviewing basic scales and chords, Abdo moves on to more advanced techniques. Such skills ready pupils for The Home Studio's annual recitals, during which students showcase their achievements for family and friends.

html_text: The teaching staff at Music University comes directly from such schools as Juilliard, Berklee, and Hard Knocks, as well as bands including Thin Lizzy, The Cult, and Mötley Crüe. With such credentials, it should come as no surprise that Music University students have gone on to play at Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center, and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. Young musicians enjoy access to top-notch gear in private studios equipped with Yamaha grand pianos, Sonor drum sets, and a Fender amp for every guitar room. Students can direct their lessons toward virtually any genre—it’s practically a certainty that someone on staff is a fan as well.
