Music Lessons

We offer music lessons in Asheville, North Carolina for guitar, bass guitar, drums/percussion, piano, violin, voice and more.

Although sometimes teachers are decided upon based solely on their schedule and availability, you should consider what characteristics in a teacher are best suited for the student.  Sometimes students respond to a particular gender better than the other or perhaps they need a very structured environment.  Office personnel will ask you these questions and more to help narrow the field of instructors.  You will also be asked if the student is interested in a particular style of music or if he/she is wanting to learn a particular technique.
