All of our students have the option of taking their lessons online or in-person. In fact, we've taught thousands of online lessons as far back as 2012! With today's advances in technology, online instruction (with a stable Internet connection and quality computer/tablet/phone) can rival in-person lessons

When seeking online music lessons or online dance classes, we feel that students have the best experience with LIVE online lessons versus prerecorded "tutorial" content. With Live Online lessons, your teacher will always be able to monitor your progress, make suggestions in real time, and ensure that you're always on track to meeting your personal goals each week. Students should invest in an appropriate instrument (such as drums, keyboard, guitar, etc) and dancers are to follow our regular class dress code.

As an adult, I was pretty skeptical that someone could teach this old dog new tricks, but, I've now been at it for over a year with Jennifer, and I can finally read music, play a couple of my favorite songs, and when I play the piano now, the cat sticks around instead of running away.
