The Musicologie Story

Hi – I’m Joseph and I started Musicologie with my wife Kay in 2014. We’ve been touring musicians (one of our songs just hit a million plays) and music educators for years. We opened Musicologie with a simple idea: Everyone is a musician. Play, sing, make beats, write songs, whatever kind of music making it is, it’s good for your mind, your body and your soul at every age. It’s part of what makes us human.

There is a huge and growing segment of parents who see music programs being eliminated from their kids’ schools and are looking for a replacement. But it’s a big challenge to create the experience those parents want and are willing to pay for. Private teachers are notoriously difficult to recruit and train, many having no experience working with kids. Maintaining a consistent, excellent standard of service is tough. Without consistency, the minority of customers who do have a good experience tend to be loyal to an individual teacher rather than the brand. These are classic challenges that every studio owner faces.

Our mission is to help music teachers, performers and entrepreneurs break through those challenges, build something big and impact their community in a really meaningful way. We’ve developed a replicable system for delivering simply delightful music lessons that’s been proven across six locations in three different markets. We’ve spent years of trial (and some error!) developing our systems, pricing, policies, branding, curriculum and most importantly, our culture. The business we’ve developed works, and it can work for you.

I’m so excited to share what we’re doing with you. Let’s get started.

Cheers,

Joseph Barker
Co-founder and CEO
Musicologie

Music is magical. It’s emotional. It’s fun. It makes us feel things and see possibilities. It expresses love and hope and sadness and fear and wonder. Every culture ever known can be identified by the music played by its people.

Music helps us learn. It improves coordination, language, reading and math skills. It nurtures our emotional and cognitive health. Studying an instrument makes our brains bigger and reduces chances of hearing loss and dementia.

And get this – it’s not merely that music provides these benefits; research shows learning music is the best way to get them.

Because of all this, music lessons are one of the most important and impactful investments anyone can make in themselves or in their children.

That’s why. Because music makes us human.


Image

To create an inclusive community of musical explorers and empower teachers to build sustainable careers.

Our mission is everything to us. It defines who we are, why we exist and where we’re going next. We want to grow our community while doing right by those around us.


Image

We act with integrity and tell the truth; we build trust through our words and actions.

We laugh and have a good time and leave other people’s days better than we found them.

We make music lessons fun! We are friendly, encouraging, patient and sometimes a little weird.

We communicate reliably and respectfully. Our words have the power to educate, inform and inspire.

We innovate and take risks, share openly and collaborate on forward thinking solutions. We create, and so we thrive.

We are curious and empathetic listeners willing and able to adapt our teaching methods to deliver an amazing learning experience.

I have been taking piano lessons with Aaron for a couple months. Aaron is a fantastic teacher, a perfect mix of professional and personable. Every lesson is enjoyable and insightful, with explicit goals to hit every week. I would highly recommend Aaron as a piano teacher for all skill levels, as he has a very deep understanding of both teaching and music theory.

I came to try to learn piano again after 25 + years of not playing at all. Pat was very responsive to my needs, and my teacher, Jiachen, did a fantastic job helping me learn things I never learned in my early days of lessons, like how to play scales. He was very patient with me. Overall a wonderful experience.

I can't begin to express just how impressed I am with Musicologie. I hit the lottery with my instructor. Nick was and is absolutely awesome. If you're looking for someone that will kinda go above and beyond, he's your guy. The staff is nothing short of kindhearted professionalism and even surpasses expectations. Just my 2 cents.

I’ve been taking piano lessons with Aaron Walsh for almost two years. I’ve only had one other piano teacher, but I’m certain Aaron is THE best out there! I hadn’t played in over 20 years (since I was in elementary school!) and he helped me start back up at a pace that felt comfortable - with beginner books but also stretch pieces to really push me and help me understand what’s possible with consistent practice.
Redwood River

My experience with Musicologie has been nothing but positive and empowering, and all communications have been clear, respectful, and flexibly accommodating. My instructor, Morgan Mecaskey, is absolutely outstanding, and I could not have lucked out with a better placement! I recommend Musicologie, both as an adult learner, coming back to music after decades, or as a young pupil who is just getting started and building their musicality. And it is super convenient, right in the heart of the neighborhood!

The instructors at Musicologie truly have a passion for teaching their students! My daughter has been going there for about 9 months for piano and while she says learning it can be "hard" her instructor Geoffrey makes it so much FUN and works to keep her engaged! In addition to the wonderful instruction, the studio is a well run business. Justin and team provide great communication, ambiance, and opportunities for students to showcase what they're learning! We are so grateful to have found Musicologie for our daughter to learn piano!

Annie

I wanted a place where my kiddo could gain skills, explore new techniques, learn how to take care of her voice, and boost her confidence. Musicologie Dublin does that in spades. My kiddo was starting to get involved in community theater and she wanted to get more vocal training. I love that they are all actively practicing their craft outside of teaching. She's taken classes with Hannah and Josh, who were both fantastic, but I would confidently recommend every teacher I've met. It's a safe place for kids (and adults) to explore and learn, and the focus is on positive encouragement and growth. We wouldn't go anywhere else.
Laura Lovett

Musicologie has been the perfect place for my daughter to take flute lessons 🙂 All of the staff are very patient, friendly, and kind.

Phenomenal! Megan prepared me for my re audition as vocalist back into my undergrad program after taking years off from a vocal injury!

I do piano lessons with Mrs Lauren.She makes me want to play piano and when I mess up she helps me figure it out. She is a nice and funny person and someone people want to be around. She is the reason I am still playing. I like how the studio is always clean, quiet, and the customer service is great. My parents agree she is the best piano teacher they have seen

Great place to start or continue your music journey.Clean and welcoming center. Rooms are big enough for any instrument coaching.Nice and friendly faculty.

No rush at all and he let the kid learn at his own pace.I highly recommend Musicologie and Wes as an instructor.

I studied the violin with Elizabeth Glaiser and it was just an amazing experience all around. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to study violin!I'm an adult learner who hasn't done anything musically for probably over 15 years. I decided to take the plunge, get a violin, and sign up for lessons and I'm so glad we found Musicologie and Elizabeth! She spoke with me about my goals and helped me to figure out exactly what I wanted out of studying an instrument. I also really appreciated how she changed her pace on different topics - if I picked something up quick and felt confident about it we would speed through, but if I was struggling she made sure to take her time and give me different tips and exercises to help me succeed on the particular skill that I was having trouble with.I have seen so much improvement in the relatively short amount of time I've spent with her. I've learned whole songs and we have been able to play duets together and it actually sounds good (which if you play the violin, you know that starting out it's so hard to not sound like a dying cat!). I'm moving internationally and am so sad that my studies with Elizabeth have to come to an end but if I end up back here they'll be my first call!

Wes has been great! Theory heavy guitar lessons done remotely is exactly what I was looking for and Wes delivers. I look forward to the weekly learning and am making connections in my playing that were not happening with YouTube videos. Highly recommended!

Jeremy Singer has been very helpful teaching me how to play bass guitar. I am an older student, yet he has shown very great patience with my difficulty. He has used a variety of teaching techniques, which keeps me motivated and makes me more knowledgeable. My goal was to try the place for a few months and then pick up the rest on the internet, yet here I am still attending after almost a year. I highly recommend Jeremy and Musicologie Anderson.
Sarah Trautmann
Sarah Trautmann
My 8 year old son has been taking piano classes with Jeremy for about a year. I'm so impressed with the progress he has made! It's been fun for our whole family to hear him practice weekly and learn more difficult songs. Most importantly, it helps teach him how to be persistent and keep trying at a song even when it's tricky at first. The smile on his face when he finally gets it is priceless!! He adds that he thinks "Mr. Jeremy is a REALLY good piano player."
Theresa Bosse

I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Kristin. She is not only warm and good-natured but also has a clear passion for music and teaching. My child has been easily frustrated and has become anxious with music lessons in the past. Kristin has turned that around. When Kristin recognizes these emotions, she expertly helps my child through them and keeps her feeling capable and confident as she’s progressing. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher for my daughter.

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.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Matt P for a little over a year now, and we’ve been so happy with her development. She initially wasn’t thrilled with the idea, but after the first lesson she loved it. The teachers make lessons fun, and my daughter loves to play the piano now! Her favorite is playing for friends and family when they come. I hope she’ll continue her love of music, and Musicologie has definitely helped her start off on the right note.

My daughter has taken ukulele, singing, and few clarinet lessons over the last 4 years. Really appreciate how they work with our goals - for her to have fun with music or maybe working on piece for school. She started taking lessons at 7 yo. Current teacher is Meghan my daughter says she is nice and kind. She is considerate of what she wants to sing while still learning new things.
Emily Gephart

My daughters have had a wonderful experience taking piano lessons at Musicologie. We weren't sure how it would go because they began virtual lessons early in the pandemic, but our experience has far surpassed any expectations!

We wholeheartedly recommend Musicologie and Matt!

I've been taking voice lessons with Matt for almost a year and with each lesson I've learned something new.

I’ve worked with two of their vocal coaches, Liz, and primarily Matt, and I’ve never been more pleased with just the overall understanding and treatment of the professionals that work at Musicologie. Coming close to a full year of monthly memberships and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. They truly are just the best coaches I could have asked for.

We currently have our two children enrolled with Ahmad at the Lewis Center location. Justin has been really great to work with. We instantly felt welcome. I am really pleased with the quality of the lessons. My son Evan is learning how to play trumpet and Ahmad is very patient with him, even on days where focusing can be hard. Norah tried violin but then wanted to switch to piano. Musicologie made it very simple for them to explore different instruments with their membership. Ahmad was very eager to introduce piano to her and she enjoyed his enthusiasm and patience. Ahmad is great at communicating with us and very understanding when we need to reschedule. He is very accommodating for makeup lessons as well. Truthfully, I am very happy that we were paired up with Ahmad. He is a great teacher, very patient with the kids, very enthusiastic and encouraging and it has been an extreme joy to work with him. We look forward to working with him for a long time:)

Our eleven year old daughter is beginning her fifth year of piano lessons with Megan & we can’t say enough wonderful things about her & the Musicologie program. Megan loves the piano & you can see her passion in the way she teaches. Our daughter has had highs & lows with lessons (like most kids do) & Megan finds a way to keep her motivated & to help her through when she gets stuck or feels like she can’t progress. Our daughter has grown in confidence in herself & Megan is instilling good work habits, critical thinking & problem solving skills that will be valuable to our daughter beyond learning an instrument. Did I mention there was a Halloween recital in full costume last year?When the pandemic hit, the Musicologie program was up with Zoom classes with lightning speed. This clearly shows the dedication of this program to keep their musicians going & to teach resilience. The rest of the world came to a stop, but our daughter kept right on playing.You can see the love of music in all of the the teachers & it’s a vibrant music school that has this positively infectious feel to it. I know this review might seem over the top, but it’s been a long journey with music lessons that required an amazing teacher that supported us & our daughter. Megan & her teaching staff at Musicologie Dublin have proven themselves worthy of 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ and then some.

Studying music at Musicologie with Renee has been an extraordinary experience for me. After listening to my wants and needs as a singer, the community managers at the school expertly recommended I work with Renee. I came to Renee with vocal issues, pain and discomfort that had been developed over years of bad muscle memory and habits while singing. Renee worked with me, quickly realizing what the problems were in my technique, and in just a few short months had me singing without the pain that had plagued me before. Now, after one year of working one-on-one with Renee, I am a much more confident singer both technically and stylistically. I do not regret my decision to seek out training with Renee or Musicologie, and recommend the same to anyone!

I have been extremely happy with my experience at Musicologie especially as an adult trying to pick up a new instrument for fun. Justin is so patient, makes the lessons enjoyable, and is always willing to work with me and my crazy schedule.It’s never too late to try something new, and Justin reminds me of that every week!

Our daughter has been taking piano lessons from Patrick for over a year, both in person, and online. He has been a great, enthusiastic teacher, helping her progress from piano basics, to independent songs. He always has words (and stickers) of encouragement as well as an eye to detail and improvement as she progresses. The welcoming no-pressure atmosphere of the recitals, showcasing students and teachers, different instruments and vocals is also a great way to inspire and interest students too. We love it!

I absolutely LOVE Musicologie Dublin and Grandview! Patrick and Matt are amazingly talented artists and are also patient , kind and enthusiastic teachers.

I am an adult student and I’ve been taking vocal and piano lessons for almost 3 years now with Liz, and it has been great! Liz is very knowledgable and she tailors the lesson based on my progress so that I can continue to get better without any frustration, but still provides enough challenges needed to facilitate improvement. I truly enjoyed every class and look forward to more in the future. I’ve met some other staff during the spring and winter concert and they are all very nice and encouraging for students! I’m glad that I’ve joined the school and would recommend it to anyone who’s thinking about starting a journey in music!

I have been taking voice lessons at Musicologie in Dublin since the start of 2020 and absolutely love it! I have taken private voice lessons in the past, but have really enjoyed my experiences at Musicologie. My instructor has helped me build strength and confidence in my voice while allowing me to explore the different styles of my voice and music. I definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to try something new or wants to strengthen their talents!

We started with the online classes and its been a good experience. Our teacher is very patient and helps the kids with any difficulties or issues with communication. Classes are quite interactive and fun. We always receive a communication of what was done in the class and what kids need to practice through the week.

My son has been learning the guitar at Musicologie Lewis Center since last year, and he has made tremendous progress in the past year, all thanks to his instructor Wes and the culture at Musicologie. Wes sets the pace according to my son's focus and ability, and is constantly encouraging and motivating. Were it not for Wes' technical depth and love for teaching, I don't think my son would be at the level that he is at. I would also like to mention the manager/owner, Justin, who is a consummate professional and has created a warm and friendly place of business.

Our son takes drumming from Wesley and we are so glad we found him! We are dealing with ASD and other co conditions that often come as obstacles for a teacher, but Wesley didn't miss a beat!

I started voice lessons in February after years of feeling self-conscious about my singing and having very little musical background. Justin was wonderful and made me feel comfortable during my assessment. I've learned so much about the voice and music in general. Now, I have fun singing, look forward to my weekly lessons, and have grown in my confidence to perform. The studio is very welcoming, and they were quick to adapt to social distancing measures by offering online lessons and following recommendations for a safe return to in-person lessons. I've referred friends and highly recommend Musicologie to anyone interested.

I have been taking weekly lessons since September of 2019 at Musicologie Lewis Center. The facility is very nice, with good sized rooms and easy parking, and Justin has been all I could ask for in an owner/manager. Managing lesson schedules is easy using the Musicologie app. The rates are fair, with a good makeup policy, and my instruction has been outstanding.I have been studying old-time fiddle with Abby Wagner, which has included technique, music theory, and discussion on history, ethnomusicology, as well social topics. Abby seems ready to explore any facet of traditional fiddle music that I have been interested in pursuing. My experience has far surpassed any expectations of a typical instrument lesson.Musicologie was quick to adopt remote learning technologies with the onset of VOVID-19, and now offers both mindful in person learning in addition to virtual instruction. Both Musicologie and Abby Wagner come highly recommend.

I've been working with Justin on and off for about 2 years now. He's a great teacher and has gone above and beyond to help me with my voice! I came to him with practically no experience and through his aid I've made great progress on my vocal technique and tone. Not only does he have expansive musical knowledge but his professional, patient personality really makes me feel comfortable during lessons. Not to mention his warmth and friendly demeanor has helped bolster my confidence which in turn motivates me to keep practicing. On top of all the one on one lessons with Justin, Musicologie provides many different opportunities and workshops that foster a great learning environment. I would definitely recommend choosing Musicologie Lewis Center to anyone looking to improve their voice or any other musical endeavor.

I have been working with Justin almost 3 years and it has been nothing short of life changing! Growing up in a musically inclined family singing and playing piano, I had gotten away from roots the past ten years. Starting back up in my late 20s, Justin has not only improved my skills as a singer and pianist, more importantly he has helped me develop a love and confidence for something that is very important to my health and well being. Whether you are looking for something serious or fun, I highly recommend that you begin (or continue) your music journey with one of Musicologie's teachers!

I've been taking lessons here for over year. After trying many other studios, I fell in love with the impact this studio has with their teaching methods. I not only learn how and what to do but also why it's important and the research behind the decisions. And then when you throw on all the additional events that are hosted by the center on top of their awesome lessons and instructors, this studio is leagues ahead of its competitors.

I wasn’t very happy at my last music studio because I felt my instructor was very inflexible with their skills and wouldn’t let me dive into other interests. My experience here at Musicologie couldn’t be different! I have the most supportive and hardworking vocal coach that insures a positive experience for me. He’s always on time to lessons, very responsive to all concerns or questions, and flexible with all my other endeavors! They’re so welcoming in Lewis center and are constantly holding events to make the studio feel like a family. Would totally recommend to any beginner or professional who wants to feel like a team with their vocal or instrument coach!

Musicologie Lewis Center is the perfect place to learn music! The teachers there are each warm, patient and kind. They are also diverse in professional experiences and music styles to fit any student's music level and interest. From taking voice lessons there with Justin, I learned so much more than I had on my own just using youtube videos. The genuine care with pinpointed feedback really helped me to adjust my singing to be healthier and more powerful when I used to be self conscious of how I sang. The teachers there really believe in their students. At the student concerts, I could tell all the other students, from young to old, really enjoyed and loved learning there. They also provide online as well as in-person lesson options too so it's pretty convenient. You won't find another organization with such strong foundations in growing a life-long love for music!

I am so happy my daughter asked to take guitar lessons at Anderson Music workshop 4.5 years ago. She has loved her lessons with "Mr. Jeremy" and has learned so much! We feel we have a rock star in the house she plays so we'll. Now her sister is learning piano as well and my house is filled with music. Since March they have been taking all their lessons through zoom and Jeremy is wonderfully punctual and prepared and emails me new music to print out. So awesome, highly recommend.

Justin is not only a vocal performance expert and brilliant business person, he's also a spectacular friend.

I wanted a place where my kiddo could gain skills, explore new techniques, learn how to take care of her voice, and boost her confidence. Musicologie Dublin does that in spades. My kiddo was starting to get involved in community theater and she wanted to get more vocal training. I love that they are all actively practicing their craft outside of teaching. We've only had first hand experience taking lessons from Cassie (who's fantastic) but I would confidently recommend every teacher I've met. This has quickly become my kiddo's favorite event of the week.

I have taken voice lessons with Megan Callison for the last year and she is phenomenal! She does a great job of teaching the technical aspects of voice while letting me dive in to different styles of music, especially my favorite folk and acoustic songs. I can't recommend her highly enough! Also, the environment at Musicologie is very positive and encouraging, I finally enjoy performing in "recitals" and open mic nights. Their app also makes it really easy to cancel and reschedule appointments when necessary. Only wish I had started taking lessons here sooner.

Justin and the staff at Musicologie Lewis Center are always professional and attentive. Justin in particular has been the perfect piano teacher for our six-year-old boys, who generally have a harder time warming up to a new teacher. Justin is thoughtful, patient and fun. He understands how to balance learning with just the right amount of entertainment for our kids, and they love going to their piano lessons. They don't even mind having to practice at home. We are really thankful to Justin and Musicologie for making learning music such an enjoyable process for our family.

I started taking voice lessons two years ago with Justin and ended up following him to Musicologie a while back, and since then to Lewis Center. I've also done a bit of voice with Regan, and have only praise for both teachers! "Knowledgeable" is the name of the game. Justin has a very scientific, researched approach which I personally like, and which I can only imagine has been a big factor in my improvement!

Facility is wonderful, always clean and has plenty of rooms for lessons/practice with plenty of amenities, musically speaking (instruments, music, etc) as well as non musically (free book exchange, water, tea, etc). My only experience with a staff member is Justin Swain but WOW he is perfection as a voice teacher. If I had been asked what all I want and need in a voice teacher and was given just that, it would be Justin. If I was that lucky. He has excellent positive energy, super knowledgeable and a good judge of what is needed for a student at any given time. Would recommend him and Musicologie to anyone, 10/10 with no hesitation!

Justin is the best! I started taking lessons from him as an adult student who had built up decades of bad habits, which meant that our first few months together focused on rebuilding my vocal technique from the ground up. Justin definitely knows his stuff and helped me re-engineer my voice so that I could sing with confidence (and without pain), something I hadn't been able to do in years. Not only is he a phenomenal instructor, but he's also a kind and empathetic individual whom I'm proud to call my friend. I'd gladly recommend him to anyone, of any age, who is looking to take their singing to the next level!
MJ Music.

Justin is THE BEST! He listens to what you want to sing, and works with you to find arrangements that will work. He takes popular songs (Billie wiling, for example) and uses them to get you exited about learning new techniques. Yes, he does like show tunes, but you can’t not find that in a vocal teacher(he chooses songs that you like anyways, so... yeah) He’s fun an pushes you to do things you uncomfortable with (I.e. performing in front of a crud ton of people) and makes sure you’re ready to do it. I could ramble on and on about how awesome he is but I’ll stop here.

My daughter asked for a violin for Christmas. After nearly a year of having it and continuous begging, we signed her up for string lessons. It was easy to sign-up, easy to schedule, and when her first instructor left, easy to transition to a new instructor. We loved our time; however, the interest is waning and our schedule of activities is ramping up so we are taking a pause. I would highly recommend this location (parking stinks, but it's Grandview) and the instructors.

I am an adult student returning to piano after years away. Although exterior of studio has a flavor of being child oriented, once at the piano with my teacher all of that fades away. My teacher, Thomas Crouch, is infectious in his enthusiasm for classical music, and always prepared for how he is going to help me get to the next step, be it with technique, theory, or the piece we are working on.

As an adult learner (and completely new to the piano) Justin has been amazing at helping me learn the ropes of the instrument and even how to read music in general. He has gone above and beyond in not only instruction but materials as well. The extra handouts, and study material has been invaluable to my learning experience. He never makes you feel bad about missing a note or having to start your piece over and over again. He truly is extremely knowledgeable about the piano. I've never asked a question her couldn't answer and his determination to make sure you truly understand the material is phenomenal. His desire to keep you growing and learning is remarkable. Every week I achieve something new that the previous week seemed impossible. The goals that we set each week are challenging yet obtainable with practice. Plus his true dedication is answering phone calls, emails or even texts when you're stuck and cant seem to move on. I look forward to what I get to learn each week and wont be stopping my lessons any time soon!

I am taking beginner piano lessons with Justin Swain. His lessons are always fun yet professional and well adapted to my learning pace and style. I can only afford the 30-minute weekly lesson plan but Justin manages to leverage this short amount of time well and I feel like I am rapidly growing as a musician. The Musicologie app/website also allows you to conveniently schedule and cancel lessons, or set up open play sessions where you can come into the studio and freely practice on their instruments without an instructor (free for students).

I've been thoroughly happy and grateful to have found this school and heartily recommend it.

Musicologie is a fantastic local spot for music lessons, and at the Westerville location, you can be assured that your needs will be met.The friendly teachers here will accommodate you regardless of your experience level - beginner to expert, hobbyist or professional, young or old! While they offer lessons for piano, voice, drums, and any manner of winds/brass/strings, my experience with them was voice lessons with Carlos, and the first time I heard the man sing it made me wholly confident in his abilities as a teacher. He was patient, creative, extremely talented and great to work with - do keep him in mind for your vocal lesson needs!The facility itself is well-organized, clean and high quality. They have professional sound-proof studio rooms for your lessons, and many are equipped with pianos, drums and guitars already (though they encourage you to bring your own instrument, other than the piano of course).Perhaps you have been to some terribly mediocre schools around town and you are a tad skeptical? You don't have to worry about that with Musicologie. They take care of YOU first. They make sure you have the perfect match in a teacher before charging you for more than one lesson. They won't overload you with unnecessary computer classes like MacGAMUT. They listen to your needs and construct your lessons accordingly, such as working on pieces that interest you or techniques you personally value while still maintaining their input and feedback as a teacher.Furthermore, the membership fee (starts at $138 monthly, that's $36 a week) is quite reasonable for all the perks you get with it, including unlimited make-up lessons, free group lessons, flexible scheduling, parent engagement with their children's lessons and involvement with community concerts. Both 30 minute and 60 minute lessons are available. Monthly charges don't suit your fancy? No worries - they also offer a pay-per-lesson system known as a Drop In lesson, and while you won't get all the perks of a monthly membership, you will have no strings attached.Why should you choose Musicologie? Because it's the best damn private-lesson music school in the Columbus area. What are you waiting for!?

After years of searching for a teacher who could get me to where I want to be in music I finally found the best teacher Megan! I couldn't be happier with her support, knowledge and patience. I highly recommend this place and will not go anywhere else! Hands down the best place to go if you want to take music lessons.

Now a student in Dublin, I was first introduced to Musicologie in Grandview a few years ago and since that time I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with teachers, owners and other students. As a former long-time resident of Dublin I would like to think that I can speak with some authority when I say that Musicologie is a place that the Dublin area and I were both missing all that time.This is somewhere that people of all ages and skill levels can come and feel welcomed. The teachers are all masters of their craft, often found performing around the city. They are great with everyone — kids, adults, beginners and those looking to further themselves.In addition to my regular solo lessons I have participated in several group classes and they have all been great fun. It is inspiring to see diverse groups of people come together and improve from week to week.The owners are enthusiastic and genuinely committed to making the experience worthwhile for every student.The only fault I can give is that they weren’t around in Dublin while I was living within the city!

Musicologie, and more specifically my teacher Megan Rainey, are simply amazing! I'm an adult who came in to improve my singing for the sole purpose of killing it at karaoke, but I've stuck around for years to improve more, learn more, move into learning songwriting and even learning to play the keyboard. Every class is a blast! They've even helped me out with special projects like recording the instrumental of a cover of a song for me to sing over (a crazy request, I know). They really seem receptive to helping you out in whatever way they can and even have recitals for their adult students which is adorable.If you want to learn more about any area of music, or want to improve the skills you already have, I highly, highly recommend contacting Musicologie!

I have really enjoyed my time here! My teacher is very knowledgeable and always considers my primary goal with music so that I can play in the way that I want to. The studio is awesome and the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly!

My daughter has been taking lessons with her instructor, Devin, for almost five years. Devin is so amazing that she is the reason we came to Musicologie. She has been so instrumental in helping to shape my daughter and her belief in herself as a musician. She is patient, and dedicated to helping her students become the best musician they can be. I cannot say enough about her dedication and commitment. The culmination of their combined efforts came together when they played at the most recent recital together. What a moment. Beautiful, such growth was made and what a talented teacher.

A truly incredible place! I've been a student with Musicologie for just over four years. The staff is so supportive and I've had immense help with my music and completing goals in it (songwriting, auditions, contest, etc.). Highly recommend!

Musicologie has not only been an amazing place for my young son to learn how to play the drums, but to nurture his love for music in a holistic way. The owners Joseph & Kay are both amazing teachers who really get kids and the individualized ways they learn. They have a great line up of staff that cover the gamut of instruments. I really can't recommend the school more highly.

Both of our boys have taken lessons at Musicologie for over a year and we couldn't be happier! The instructors are friendly, approachable, and very talented. Our boys are learning both classical and contemporary music that they are interested in and this keeps them engaged in learning.

Fairmount School of Music is an incredible place to learn music through private lessons. The school has an incredible staff and is located in a great area!
