We offer lessons for adults and children featuring a student-centered learning approach combining classics with contemporary and keeping learning fun and relevant. Music literacy is emphasized through games (for the young) and composition (for the young at heart).

So I’ve dabbled in guitar for years and I’ve always wanted to get past my point of self taught. Austin has been catching me up to speed on my guitar skills and now I’m beyond where I thought I could ever be. Not only has he created a amazing learning environment he has created a great lesson plan that has taken my skills beyond my expectations in just a few weeks. So happy I signed up with Maestro Music Academy, the value is amazing! Don’t sign up with the rest when you can have the best, Austin!

Thank you for sharing about your progress, Ace! It’s so rewarding for us to hear how adults can take their playing to the next level and meet (or exceed) their goals. Keep playing!

This company was responsive and worked with us till we find a schedule that worked for them and us. They were willing to do semi private lesions. Their price was very reasonable, and they had their first lesson today. The girls seemed comfortable with the lesson, and had positive things to say about Hunter who was their instructor. We look forward to continuing to work with them long term. Thanks!!

Details: Child (0 - 17 years old) • No formal training • No, the student cannot read music • Classical violin • Classical • Yes, the student has a violin • 30 minutes • I travel to the violin teacher • The violin teacher travels to me

When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Private lessons on piano, voice, flute, guitar, ukulele, violin, acting, and musical theatre tuition is based on lesson length. Group lessons provide students the opportunity to collaborate and learn in a small group setting. Class sizes are limited to allow for optimal instructor attention. All group lesson tuition packages include lesson books and study materials!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    New customers are invited to a trial lesson (see tuition section for more information). Once our teacher wows you with their affability and professionalism, you may save your prefered lesson time with a deposit. Then you'll start meeting with your teacher every week!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    All staff are highly qualified and routinely perform on their own instruments. We offer continuing education to staff through webinars and seminars. One of the goals of Maestro Music is to grow our teachers in their own educational skills and support them, as often teachers in the public schools lack that support. Performing challenges us to become better musicians also!
