Our Music Programs in Lewis Center

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 Lewis Center

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.
