Contact the Instructors

Our instructors are self-employed professionals and all arrangements are made directly with them, including contracts, scheduling, and payments.

You may schedule your lessons directly with the instructors. Click on the instrument name above and then the instructor's name to read a short bio and see contact details.

Please don't e-mail teachers to make last-minute schedule changes, as they may not receive it in time. 


Make Yourself Comfortable

The Music Connection is your family-friendly music store. Our waiting area has toys and an array of seating so parents and siblings can wait comfortably for their music student. Students may also wait safely in the waiting area before and after lessons. We like to think of ourselves as one big family –with diverse musical tastes!







Instruments

Students must furnish their own instrument to be used during the lesson (except drums and amplifiers). Instruments are available for purchase at an excellent price for our students -- click here to see brands available and their price ranges. Loaner instruments may be arranged for lessons for your convenience.

Or you may rent by the month from The Music Connection -- click here for rental instruments and prices.
