We offer lessons in piano, voice, guitar, bass, violin, viola, ukulele, drums, saxophone, flute, trumpet, clarinet and many other instruments! All styles of music are offered, including rock, pop, jazz, country, blues, and classical.
We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. Each student is a unique person with different goals, background, learning style, and more. We make it a priority to get to know you or your child personally and find out what you would like to learn in your lessons. A nine year old student starting music lessons for the first time will have a much different course of study than a forty-two year old who studied piano when they were younger. The goal of Music Lessons Express is to instill and foster a deep love of music, and to help you develop skills in a fun and interactive way so that you can start creating music on your own! You get to study the musical styles that YOU enjoy, in a format that helps you retain and move forward.
We welcome all aspiring musicians, from beginners all the way through advanced students (ages 5 – adult). You don’t need to know anything about music or your instrument to start. We will take you from square one and teach you to read and play music. All you need is the desire to start playing! Our lessons are also ideal for children who would like to take drums, guitar, violin, etc. in band class, since many schools require a minimum of two years of piano instruction in order to cement the basics of rhythm and reading music.
No, a full-size keyboard is sufficient for the first year or so. Renting an instrument is another option. Please contact our office staff for suggestions on places to rent string, brass or woodwind instruments.
All of our teachers have either college degrees in music or extensive performance/teaching experience. We choose our instructors for their warm personalities. Our teachers work well with both children and adults, and are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. They are friendly, patient, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level. It is also the policy of Music Lessons Express that every instructor has successfully passed a criminal background check, therefore you know the person working with you or your child is an upstanding person in our community.
Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.
Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. All drummers bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their lessons and theory is encouraged. We have many drum students who play in local bands be it in rock clubs or their local churches. You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons. Beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks for only $25.00. Students use our drum set at their lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drum sticks!
Our voice teachers primarily focus on popular music. If you have always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B singer, then we have the right voice teachers for you. Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice. We not only teach singers, but also local TV and radio personalities who want to enhance their speaking voices. Sign up today by calling 850-219-3653 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
