Ohio’s #1 Music Lessons Studio

Musicologie has more than 236(!) verified five-star reviews and recommendations on Google, Facebook, Yelp and more. Here are some of our favorites:

My son first took piano lessons here for one year with Eric who was awesome but now he is taking guitar with Doug who is also awesome. They get kids which is important to me because I didn't want learned music to seem too much like additional 'school' to him. They have been great in making it fun, engaging and my son is truly progressing in his musical abilities.
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!

What to Expect at Voice Lessons for Young Singers: Ages 12 & Under

March 19, 2021

I have frequently been asked by the parents and caregivers of my young voice students: “How do voice lessons work for their age?” or “Is this a good time for them to start voice lessons?”  The Traditional Thinking Many voice teachers and pedagogues believe that voice lessons should begin no earlier than age 12 for female voices and age 15 for male voices. During puberty (between ages 10 and 14 for females and 12 and 16 for males), the voice changes because the larynx or voice box grows and descends, while the vocal cords tend to thicken and grow. Before ... read more
