Ms. Renee is awesome! She is so patient with my daughter and she really works to find music that she enjoys. Plus, she keeps at it until the arrangement fits my daughter. Her praise and constructive comments have really boosted my daughter's confidence and strengthened her love of music.?

We have been taking drum lessons here for over a year now and have always been impressed with the talent of the teachers (who are active musicians) and their patience and positive approach to teaching.They have been more than accommodating during this period of COVID-19 and the quality of instruction remains just as high.Your child will be sure to enjoy their time here while they grow their musical talents!

Brought my 9 year old child here for Drum lessons and he really enjoyed the experience. They were great working with someone his age and helping him get into the instrument. Very highly recommended for anyone interested in learning an instrument.

Musicologie has been great! Once COVID hit they began offering virtual lessons, which has been a wonderful option for us! The teacher we have (Renee) is amazing and does so well with our 5 year old!

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!

We have had a great experience in the last year and a half at musicologie. My daughter’s violin teachers have been fantastic and easy to work with. The musicologie app is easy to use when needed and the community manager is very responsive and helpful!

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.

My daughter just started her guitar lessons at the westerville center. She has been playing for over 2 years, so she is not new to the instrument. However I see her grow every week from new skills to really mastering existing ones. Thanks Andrew and musicology.

We love Musicologie! Thomas is a fantastic instructor who has helped my daughter grow more and more confident on the piano. He challenges and encourages her. I am so impressed how far she’s come in just under one year. Highly recommend!

I’ve been taking lessons at Musicologie for a year and it’s been absolutely amazing. I had no background in piano prior to my lessons and I was playing Chopin’s Prelude #4 within a few months. I recently signed up my 5 year old daughter too and she’s doing great. She is very excited for her lesson each week. Highly recommend.

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!?

My daughter has taken drum and piano lessons at Musicologie and has had a wonderful experience so far. The instructors are awesomely talented and enjoy sharing their skills. I like the convenience of flexibile scheduling when necessary. This is a great place to learn music!

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.

With the school year quickly approaching, many parents and students alike are concerned with the challenges at home learning may pose.

Our Westerville Music Programs

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 Westerville

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 Westerville

Music is a critical part of human experience. It enriches everyone's life and can be taught and enjoyed at any age.

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.

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.

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 🙂
