Instrument Lessons

Learning to play an instrument has many benefits for all ages that include improving physical, cognitive, and psychological skill sets. Adult students can enjoy a new sense of creativity and a form of freedom of expression that helps to rejuvenate the soul and add purpose to life. Children who participate in musical endeavors enjoy a sense of challenge and accomplishment and a greater appreciation for the arts. Research has shown studying an instrument helps to develop analytical and critical thinking skills which carry over in other areas of life.

Lessons are available to all ages and levels. Lessons are structured toward the learning style of each student with an emphasis on positive reinforcement while learning basic elements of music.
