Getting individual instruction from one of our excellent teachers can improve your skill as a player, help a beginning student or simply just help you learn how to get the most out of your instrument. We are the nation’s largest lesson provider and have some awesome teachers who can teach a variety of styles and ages. All of our private instructors go through extensive background checks and come recommended by the community. Check out our teacher’s bio profiles above!
