Get Started
 
I LOVE all the different lessons they offer. And that as a regular piano student, you can substitute for lessons of a different instrument or voice. It’s nice to be able to experiment with something new to expand our horizons!
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.

Musicologie Voted Best Music Instruction

October 15, 2020

Musicologie has won Best in Music Instruction in Columbus Parent Magazine Family Faves reader survey for the fifth year in a row! And that makes me so happy, and a little nostalgic. Well, a lot nostalgic, actually. I remember when my oldest was really little and we were less encumbered by schedules, we ventured out everyday. We were regulars at COSI’s little kidspace, ran the circuit of play cafes, and sought out every library storytime in the Greater Columbus area. We rarely had lunch at home when the weather was nice. It was far more fun to spread a blanket ... read more

Our Music Programs in Anderson

Lukas plays the ukulele at MusicologiePrivate Lessons for Kids

Kids learn best when they’re having fun. Our curriculum combines music your child is interested in, while also giving them the fundamental technique and theory they need. We start private lessons at about 5 years old. If you’re not sure where to start, piano is a great instrument that teaches lots of musical basics. Our flexible program allows your child to switch instruments or teachers if their interest changes.

What to Expect

30 minute weekly lesson time. We’ll match your child to a teacher and get started with a curriculum based on age and interests. We recommend you sit in on the lesson with your child for the first few weeks so you know what they’re learning and how you can help at home. Get started here.

Instruments We Teach in Anderson

Piano Lessons

Piano is a great instrument to start your musical journey. Because it’s visual and linear, it’s the simplest way to learn the building blocks of music. For young beginners, we usually recommend piano as a starting place.

Frequently Asked Questions About Musicologie Anderson

What is Your Teaching Philosophy?
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.
What Curriculum Do You Use?
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.
What Ages Do You Teach?
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.
Do I Need My Own Instrument?
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 🙂
