At The Studio Downtown, we structure our lessons from an artistic standpoint simply with a weekly lesson, one-on-one with an accomplished instructor. Learning continues at home with online coaching of recorded highlights of their Studio lesson for review and practice. Lessons are 30 minute sessions once a week August thru May. The cost is $95 per month. Payment is due at the beginning of the first class of each month. In addition to being taught fundamental skills and theory, our interactive approach covers various styles of music – rock, jazz, blues, country, indie and contemporary. Performing in front of a live audience is vital to a student’s growth as a musician. Our students can participate in spring recitals and on more of a casual atmosphere students will have performance opportunities at our monthly jam sessions.
