If you’re a social learner interested in picking up an instrument, check out our group lessons! By design, students learn as much from their peers as they do from the instructor in group lessons. Learn an instrument like the guitar, bass or ukulele and bond with friends, family and coworkers at the same time! Ask about our group lesson options today!
Have you been putting off restringing your guitar, bass or orchestral instrument? Taking the time to put new strings on an instrument can be a huge inconvenience, especially if you’re getting ready for a performance. Instead of dealing with the hassle, why not let our expert instrument repair and maintenance team handle it for you? Drop your instrument off with us and we’ll have it cleaned and restrung in no time. We’re here to help you get back to what’s most important––playing music!
