Great studio! My 7 yr old son loves his guitar lessons with Wes. Wes is extremely knowledgeable and very good working with kids. Easy communication and scheduling. Highly recommend Wes at Musicologie-Lewis Center.

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:)

Have nothing but positive things to say about Musicologie! Everyone there is extremely welcoming and encouraging. They put me with a great teacher and I have really enjoyed learning to play an instrument as an adult.

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!

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! (Pun intended) He has jumped right in and helped us get the full experience while providing tremendous patience, kindness, and guidance. Wesley is THE BEST!

Wesley is the best! My Husband Tom is very hard of hearing so communicating can be difficult, but Wesley is a very patient and kind person. Because of Misicologie and Wesley, Tom is loving the drums and has found a new, exciting and fun interest!

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.

Hannah Bullock is my son's piano teacher, and she is great. My son says, "I really like her style of teaching". She is patient, and thorough. She communicates her instructions very well, even over a Zoom lesson!

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 love working with Justin. He's been great about helping me reach my goals and even expand them. He's honest and provides great critical feedback. He's provided flexible times, sometimes even free lessons, and the space is clean, cheerful, open and inviting. I love it.

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!

Great instructors and the group classes led by Justin and Hannah are incredibly beneficial. They even provide Musicologie Junior and other outreach programs to underserved communities throughout central Ohio. They are so helpful and care about every single one of their students. Go to Musicologie! You won’t be sorry!

Justin is not only a vocal performance expert and brilliant business person, he's also a spectacular friend. The resources at Musicologie have helped me refine my vocal technique, write an album, and even put me in contact with a studio to record an album. I can't recommend Musicologie Lewis Center enough.

I have been taking Voice lessons with Justin for about 1.5years now. He is one of the most amazing teachers in terms of technique, music knowledge, communication and personality! I absolutely love taking lessons with him and being part of the Musicologie family. He is kind, understanding, creative and makes sure that each of his students get to where they want to be. I am really glad to have the opportunity to learn with him!!

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!

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.

I have been taking vocal lessons at Musicologie for about 1 1/2 years and Justin has been phenomenal. He has the education, background, and attitude to get you to where you want to be as a singer. He will challenge you and teach you things you didn’t even know about. The facility is open and very inviting. I highly recommend studying here!

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!

Frequently Asked Questions About Musicologie Lewis Center

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.

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 🙂
