Our teacher is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, my children enjoy taking lessons with him.
Regan has been perfect for my daughter’s piano and voice lessons! My daughter looks forward to her lessons every week! Thank you!
Cole is the man! Been very enjoyable working with him and the rest of the musicologie staff. Very freindly, and helped my piano playing immensely.
Great lessons. Cole is a excellent teacher!
Ms. Renee is awesome! She is so patient with my daughter and she really works to find music that she enjoys. Plus, she keeps at it until the arrangement fits my daughter. Her praise and constructive comments have really boosted my daughter's confidence and strengthened her love of music.?

DIY Dice Game

Meet the Founders

Musicologie was started in 2014 by musicians and teachers Kay and Joseph Barker. They’ve performed all over the country with their band, Bella Ruse and written music for TV shows and commercials. Their mission is to create inclusive communities of explorers and empower teachers to build sustainable careers. Read about how the Musicologie mission informs our decisions, and about our Community Manager program which enables teachers to become a co-owner at their own Musicologie.

Musicologie now has more than 50 highly qualified, expert teachers, and four beautiful private lesson studios.

Our Philosophy

You’re different. You have your own goals, abilities and musical tastes. We create an individualized experience that’s comfortable and positive, making sure that every lesson is both fun and challenging.

We also know that learning an instrument is hard work. We’re here to develop your skills and passion at the same time and will fight through the challenges with you! We’re more than teachers: we’re friends and role models too.
