Lessons are weekly one-on-one sessions with a teacher specifically matched to you or your child based on your experience and goals. We have programs designed to introduce young students to music, to help middle and high school students succeed in juries and competitions, or even help professionals hone their craft.
Get Started in 3 Steps
The first step is to introduce yourself and help us get to know you. You can do that by filling out our get started form. We’ll talk briefly about your story and what you want to achieve and then we’ll schedule an assessment lesson.
Next, we’ll schedule your initial lesson. The first lesson is a 30 minute assessment lesson. At the assessment, you’ll meet your teacher, who will go over your goals and develop a personal curriculum for you. We know that your relationship with your teacher is the most important thing about lessons and we work hard to make sure it’s right from the beginning. A 30-minute assessment is $32.
After the assessment, you’ll sign up for ongoing weekly lessons. Most are 30 minutes, but some students do 45 minute or hour long lessons. All ongoing lessons are reserved for you on the same day and time each week with the same teacher. You’ll also be able to attend optional group classes, performances and open practice.
Frequently Asked Questions
Music is a critical part of human experience. It enriches everyone's life and can be taught and enjoyed at any age. We believe in nurturing the innate curiosity that everyone in born with, empowering our students to achieve their musical goals. Learning music makes life more enjoyable. It can be a relaxing break from busy life. For young beginners, including infants and toddlers, it's an important component of emotional and mental development. Music is truly for everyone, at every level of playing or singing, and we want to help you make music a deeper part of your life.
We have two guiding principles: First, you'll stay more engaged by learning music you love. Second, you'll grow faster by using what you've learned in lessons through performing. We'll take traditional method books like Suzuki, Alfred's, Faber, etc., and combine that with contemporary music you're excited about with the goal of performing in one of our ensembles, group classes, or at one of our concerts.
Performing is encouraged as a way to develop your skill, but it's always optional.
We teach all ages. We have a toddler group class for ages 0-5 called Musicologie Junior. We start private lessons around 5 and teach lots of adults as well.
Not for your first lesson. We have instruments at our studios you can use for the first few lessons. But after that you'll want to get your own instrument for practice at home. Your teacher will help you pick out the right one. We also have open practice hours so you can come in and use instruments and practice rooms at Musicologie during the week.
If you do have your own instrument, you should definitely bring it with you, as long as it's easily portable - leave your piano and drums at home 🙂
You can sign up anytime. Get started here and introduce yourself. We'll match you with a teacher and find a time that works for ongoing lessons. The first lesson is called an assessment lesson.
An assessment lessons is what we call your first lesson. Don't worry, it's not a test! You'll come in, meet your teacher, talk about your goals, go through our policies and develop an individual curriculum. Every student does it regardless of age or ability. For very young students, an assessment is also a chance to see if they're ready for private lessons.
