How do I sign up for a trial lesson?

All prospective students begin with a paid trial lesson.  This is an assessment to gauge the student’s learning needs, understand their unique connection to music, and ultimately to see if our program is a good fit.  If for some reason we believe another program/teacher would be better support the student’s learning journey, we will provide recommendations.

Currently we do not offer group classes.  Our program is designed for individual growth and support.  These lessons do provide occassional group projects, activities, and music shares. 

What is the youngest student you teach?

Starting age varies, but for the most part we teach students 5 years old and up. Occassionally we teach some 4 year old students.
