Online Lessons Program

Weekly  lessons for Guitar, Ukulele, Piano & Voice 




Learn the basics of getting stated with our 5 week beginning classes held online, as our instructors teach how to get the best start on the instrument of your choice. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and always ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. 


Throughout the course our online instructors will also be available to schedule one on one digital lessons to check in on your progress, make sure you are on the right track, and answer any questions you have about your instrument and progress.

After you complete the 5 week beginners course your instructor will continue to be available to meet with you weekly for one on one lessons (either in-person or digitally) and completely customize lessons based on your preferences while you continue.
