Music School

Downtown Sounds
Music School

We have 7 lesson rooms downstairs (soon to be 10), and lessons are offered 7 days a week. Give us a call and we’ll see if we can line up your schedule, instrument, and goals with the right teacher. A “standard” regular lesson is 30 minutes long, but most teachers also offer 45 and 60 minute options, when possible. COMING SOON: Group classroom!

For all inquiries, please email: lessons@downtownsounds.com
