Covington School of Music
1111 Village Walk Rd
Covington, LA 70433

Our Covington campus on the Northshore has helped hundreds of kids, teens, and adults learn to play their first notes and reach their musical goals!

About Our Music & Dance School

Located in historic downtown Covington, LAAPA's Covington location serves over 200 students from all over the Northshore including Bush, Folsom, Franklinton, Hammond, Madisonville, Mandeville, and Slidell, LA.

We also love seeing our dedicated Mississippi students who commute from Carriere, Picayune, and Gulfport, MS.

Choosing a Music Teacher

We are fortunate here on the Northshore to have many qualified local music educators. As such, we realize that making the best choice when choosing a teacher or just educating oneself about what to expect or simply how to get started can sometimes be a challenge.

For your convenience, we've provided overviews and program guides for our Covington school below. When you choose the "Explore" link, we suggest taking some time to especially review the links provided to our "Beginner's Resource Guides for Music Lessons and Dance Classes".

With over 40 years in education, we feel these guides offer practical advice for what beginning students should expect and seek out when seeking a professional teacher and education. Please note that all dance classes are held at our North Mandeville facility.

Option for Live Online Lessons

We love working with beginners in lessons!

While most students still prefer to take their lessons with us on campus, virtual learning is continually becoming more popular. Online lessons are certainly nothing new for our school, and we've taught thousands of students online since we opened this option in 2012!

Our students have the benefit of choosing how they'd like to attend their lessons each week with us! Prefer to come in sometimes and take online at other times? No problem! Just let us know your preference each week.

When seeking online lessons, it's important to consider that not all online teaching is equal. Many online courses and apps are video tutorials that you are expected to complete on your own, so if you have questions you are usually out of luck. Also, most content like this can already be found free of charge on our YouTube channel! In our experience, LIVE online lessons with a real teacher always work best so that you can receive customized lesson plans to meet your goals.

My instructor, as well as the staff, at Covington School of Music are first class A+! They make learning music easy to understand and have the experience and knowledge to help students at any level.

We absolutely love the Covington School of Music! My son is taking drum lessons and he has learned so much from his teacher in a very short period of time. The staff is awesome to work with with as well. They always help out with any scheduling problems when they arise. Great teachers and great customer service! Highly recommended!

I was skeptical about learning to play an instrument, but after walking into Covington School of Music and being greeted with a warm welcome and a personal tour of the facility, I committed on the spot! My instructor has helped me learn guitar on a level that was tailored to me. 1 on 1 lessons are paced at your own level and skill set (Which I had none of going in)! Highly recommend Covington School of Music if you're looking to learn the guitar!!!
