What days/times are available?

Our schedule is constantly changing with new students and makeup lessons, so just give us a call at 832-604-6750, or you can email us here. We will find a day and time that works for you!


What teaching methods do you use?

Each lesson program and instrument is different, but we always focus on a personalized lesson plan that is unique to each student while still laying down a common foundation. We use a variety of ways to do this, such as ear training, music reading and the use of different reference materials the student takes home. Much like language, no two people learn exactly the same way!


Do I need to have my own instrument?

Yes. In order to properly learn and improve on the chosen instrument, it is highly recommended the student has something to practice on at home. This is where 90% of the improvement comes from!


Do I need to bring my instrument to the lessons?

That depends on the lesson type, but generally guitar and bass students need to bring their guitars only (amps are already provided), and drum students just need to bring sticks.


Do you offer makeup lessons?

Yes. View our Policies page for more details on how makeup lessons are given.


How often is tuition due?

Tuition is due monthly for the upcoming month. If you are a new student starting in the middle of the month, it will be prorated. Go to our Policies page for more information on tuition.


Where are you located?

We are located off Jones Rd, next to the HEB shopping center at West Rd. You can go to our Contact Us page for a helpful map.
