Music Maker Studios has been providing private music lessons to all levels of kids and adults for over 30 years. We teach piano, guitar, drums, saxophone, clarinet, flute, trumpet, bass guitar, and voice. We put on a recital in June to let our students showcase their talents and to give their parents and family members a chance to enjoy a live performance in front of an appreciative audience. While all of our teachers are formally trained and educated, we can customize lessons to meet your specific goals and needs. If you need help buying an instrument, we can help you with this, and we also sell basic accessories that you’ll need for your lessons and for your instrument. If you have more than one child taking lessons, we will make every effort to coordinate lesson times so you only have to make one trip.
We also offer ensemble classes for intermediate and advanced players who want to play jazz with other musicians. We currently have two active adult ensembles taught by our saxophone teacher, Bob Brenner. The adult ensemble classes have been running for many years. People tend to stay with these ensembles for a long time – one member has been here since 1981. Ensemble classes are very casual, non-competitive, and friendly. If you have a desire to play, you’re welcome to come sit in on one of the classes. Click on the “Ensemble” tab to hear some examples of their playing or to see some photos from recent gigs and rehearsals.
Music Maker Studios also offers equipped rehearsal space for bands, private rehearsal space for drummers and piano players, and also rents out rooms to private teachers by the hour. If you’re a piano teacher who does housecalls and wants to start renting space, but can’t commit to monthly rent for commercial space, we can help you
