You can learn to play music at any age! We teach seniors, adults and children starting at 4 years old.
What is the difference between group and private lessons?
Private lessons are a good fit if you have a specific goal to achieve and want faster results.
Group lessons are excellent if you want an enriching musical experience: playing with others, sharing the sound space, experiencing harmony, jamming and learning together.
Children under the age of 7 are encouraged to learn in a group setting. They learn a lot from each other and their listening skills improve faster than in private lessons, due to the group singing, ensemble playing and team playing.
How are groups for group music lessons divided?
Group lessons are typically divided by age range: ages 4-6, ages 7-9, ages 10-13, ages 14-17, and 18+.
