Music Lessons for Kids of All Ages

Locally in La Mesa

We teach students in our home studio in La Mesa, CA. Most lessons are weekly for 30-min, and the material and pace are adjusted to suit our student’s needs.

Virtually via Zoom

We teach select students across the United States virtually via Zoom. Of course it’s not as good as in person, and yet it’s better than it’s ever been before!

Our principal teacher, Emily, has been teaching adults and kids since 1995. She makes learning music fun and encourages her students to grow at their own pace.

What Students & Parents Are Saying

I went from Zero Knowledge of how to read music or knowing anything about music to being able to identify every single key on the keyboard in one hour!

They customized my learning experience to be tailor formed to my needs.

I just can’t say enough about how amazing of a teacher Emily is!

– Jessica B.

I decided to learn the violin 10 years ago, played for a few months, and stopped. I just didn’t fall in love with it.
This year, I started lessons again with Kenna…
Now, I am learning how to play music and that is exciting!

Thank you for being patient with me, my schedule and my learning style! I now truly love the violin.

– Aubree R.

Emily shows patience and care with my daughter’s flute lessons. She works at my daughter’s pace and provides so many tips and tricks for a first-time flute player. She is so encouraging and gives my daughter so much confidence!

Highly recommend!

– Sandy E.

Emily makes learning to play the piano so much fun! I am 65 years old and I feel confident I can master it! I look forward to my weekly tutorials. Emily with her sweet smile, supreme knowledge and absolute gift of music encourages me to learn.

I highly recommend Emily, for anyone of any age who wants to embrace music and learn how to play an instrument.
