Hours & Location



At Robert's Music, lessons are offered on piano, voice, violin, viola, guitar, ukulele, bass, drums, trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, flute, music theory and more.  Most of our lessons are private lessons, however we also have offered rock ensemble, chamber ensemble and jazz ensemble classes at various times.  All lessons are taught right at the store in our teaching studios.  Many of our teachers have added a virtual lesson option.  Please ask the teachers directly for details.

Currently, we have 17 teachers using our studio space on a weekly basis. All of our teachers are professionals and specialize in the instruments they teach.  Most of our teachers have bachelor or masters degrees in music or music education.

We often get asked how old someone should be when starting lessons. It is recommended that students be at least 7 years old.  However, we do have piano and violin teachers who are Suzuki certified and/or specialize in teaching those who are a little younger.  If you are a little older than the average student - don't worry! We have many adult students who are either brushing up on skills they had when younger, or treating themselves to lessons for the first time.  All of our teachers have experience with both children and adults, from beginner to advanced players.

There is no minimum number of lessons to sign up for, but often it is recommended that you commit to a month at a time.

Our Teachers

Private lessons usually take place once per week here in our studios, but virtual lessons may also be an option. Please contact the teachers directly for available time slots, expectations, pricing and all other lesson details.
