An online lesson in progress

Yes, We Teach Online Lessons

In fact, we teach lots of them! Since the COVID-19 outbreak, our teachers are delivering nearly 100 online private lessons each week. Parents thank us for continuing their children's music education under these difficult circumstances. And adult students are using their free time to work on musical skills.

Our online platform works with lots of devices, and it's secure because each student gets a personal lesson access code that's dedicated to their specific lesson time. Students don't have to create any accounts and never log in with personal identifying information.

Want to give online lessons a try? Give us a call or send us a message via our Ask Us! page. Our teachers offer free no-obligation trial lessons, and we'd be happy to walk you through testing your device.

Kids playing band instruments

Parents' Guide to Band Instruments
