Who needs music lessons? After all, can’t you simply just Youtube a how-to video and figure it out?
In some cases, sure. But having expert, hands-on instruction accelerates learning, gives you someone to build a rapport with, and plugs you into a local community who’s supporting your growth every step of the way. (And it doesn’t hurt we can answer all your questions and even repair your instrument, too.)
Taking lessons is great, but building friendships and sharing the joys of new achievements? That’s what makes it so worthwhile! And if you’re looking to enhance your playing abilities or simply learn for the first time, let us know how we can help you!

Music lessons have brain benefits!
As early as 2006, there has been research showing increased cognitive function in children taking musical training (instrument, vocals, etc.).
“After one year the musically trained children performed better in a memory test that is correlated with general intelligence skills such as literacy, verbal memory, visiospatial processing, mathematics and IQ.”
And the brains of musicians differed from that of non-musicians in a 2003 study published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
