Adult Music Program
You're never too old to start! Our music schools boast more adult students enrolled in music lessons than any other private music studio or school. There are enough adult music students to have a separate Teen / Adult set at our rock recitals, as well as making a decent showing at our All Ages Jazz Jam. If you've been sitting on the fence about starting music lessons, call (310) 540-6767 right now so you can get started. Join the fun!
