I started with a one-off and then took the lead from my son who loved the lesson and asked to come back. He REALLY looks forward to Saturday lessons — and I don’t blame him. He’s treated and trained to be a musician, he’s challenged in ways that follows his facility and interests, and Kari listens to his questions and questing to push beyond just the basics.
For a young person who struggles in other learning settings, this has been a bright spot where he shines because he loves it —there is joy—, and I don’t hear the word “hate” (as in “I hate school”). This is the one place where I don’t have to drag or prompt him to go.
After taking lessons, I feel even more excited to play my violin and to learn new techniques. I feel that I have made more progress in the last year than I would have if I had tried to do it on my own.
My teacher also helped me with my posture and stance. By doing this, it has made playing more comfortable for me. I don’t think I would have figured out what adjustments to make if it weren’t for her.

Making music can bring lifelong joy. That's why so many parents put their kids in music lessons.
But getting started feels overwhelming. Life is busy. Where do you even begin?
We think everyone should have the chance to enjoy making music. Taking lessons for the first time can be intimidating.
That's where we come in. We've helped hundreds of musicians along their musical journeys from selecting the first instrument to their forever instrument, taught first notes to soloistic concertos, and have helped with repairs and maintenance all along the way.
Whether it's lessons, instrument sales, or even getting a custom instrument built, we have everything for someone wanting to try music.
Start your musical journey today. Whether it's learning your first instrument or finally getting a custom instrument made, we're here to help.
Here’s how we do it:
How do I enroll?
Easy! Sign up for an intro lesson and then we will contact you to figure out what day and time works best for you and assign a teacher based on your goals.
How is tuition handled?
Tuition is billed on the first of each month to a card on file. There is no yearly commitment for lessons.
What about the month with more or less weeks?
No worries! If you have 4 lessons or 5 lessons in a month, you will still only pay the monthly rates listed above.
What ages do you teach?
We teach ages 5 - adult (it's never too late to start!)
All payments are done online via auto-pay with the credit card you securely place on file. No cash is available onsite. A late fee of $30 will be applied to any invoice more than 15 days past due.
How long are lessons and how long is your program?
Lessons are 30 minutes once a week each week at the same day and time. Some students choose to do an hour-long lesson. Lessons are on-going until you choose to stop. Some classes and programs may have a defined duration (usually 1-3 months).
