Our Facility

Our teaching rooms are designed to provide the best teaching and learning environment. Teaching is the most important part but if you can combine great teaching with a clean, acoustically sound, inspiring, motivating, and comfortable room you get even better results. Our rooms are equipped with all the essentials which gives the opportunity for the student and instructor to have their own instrument helping create a much smoother lesson flow, This also provides the ability for both to play together when the lesson calls for such an activity. In addition each room has a play back system combined with headphones allowing the students to learn and play along to their favorite songs alongside their instructor.

About Our Programs

Our approach to drum lessons is all about getting students to start playing drums from day one! It doesn’t always mean playing full-blown grooves or beats but depending on the student’s age we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to hit the drums and begin to experience how fun and exciting it is.

Our approach to guitar lessons, bass guitar and ukulele lessons is all about getting students to start playing guitar from day one! It doesn’t always mean playing full-blown chords or songs, but depending on the student’s age, we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to strum the guitar and begin to experience how fun and exciting it is.

Our approach to piano lessons is all about getting students to start playing piano from day one! It doesn’t always mean playing full-blown chords or songs, but depending on the student’s age we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to play the piano and begin to experience how fun and exciting it is.

Our approach to voice lessons is all about getting students to start singing from day one! It doesn’t always mean singing full-blown songs but depending on the student’s age, we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to sing together and begin to experience how fun and exciting it is.

There’s nothing more fun and rewarding than making music as a group. In Jam Lab, we match up students with similar skill levels and teach them how to rehearse and play some of their favorite songs together. Then we take the show on the road! Ok, it may be a local coffee shop, grill or other small venues, but they get to see how fun it is to play for a live audience! 

We schedule recitals a few times a year to allow students to work towards a goal and then share their gifts with a live audience. And you’re invited!  This is an extremely special and rewarding time for our aspiring musicians. We announce these well ahead of time so you can get them on your calendars.

Greatest teachers around. Nate works with my son who is 7 and just learning and experiencing drums for the first time. He keeps it cool and simple, my son loves it.

The teachers are all very skilled and my son has learned so much over the year+ he’s been going. His instructor Stixx is fantastic!
