♪ What can I expect?
At Trevelise Musique, we provide fun, engaging online and in-person music instruction to all ages and abilities. We want to develop a life-long love and desire regarding learning and playing music! We provide instruction that moves at the pace of each unique student. We love utilizing engaging materials, music, backing tracks, teacher duet parts, ensemble options, rhythm work (cup rhythms are our favorite!) and games for our students during lessons to help reinforce the musical concepts being taught.
♪ What if I've never taken lessons before?
Not a problem! You can start music lessons at any age! We'll have all of the books and materials you'll need ready for you at your first lesson. ☺
♪ Do I need a keyboard/piano/guitar/violin/drumset etc. before lessons start?
Yes! If you're not quite sure what to purchase, contact the local businesses below and they can help you find the right intstrument/fit. When first venturing into a new instrument, you might decide to wait to purchase, and rent instead. In most cases, your rental fees can go towards the purchase of the instrument once you're sure you've found the right match.
Capital Music Center (amazing Roland keyboard and drum sets to rent for as little as $39/month! Highly recommended. Mention that you're signing up to take lessons with Trevelise Musique, and they'll discount your rental or purchase price!)
Strait Music (guitar and wind rentals)
Austin Strings (violin, viola, cello, and double bass rentals)
Guitar Center (guitar rentals)
♪ What times/days are available for lessons?
Trevelise Musique offers lessons during the week as well as on the weekends. Each teacher has their own schedule, so we will find the best day and time for you to have your lesson. Most lessons are held online via Zoom during COVID-19 outbreak, though there are some teachers who are teaching in-person in student's homes (with safety measures in place).

Recital format for spring 2020 is TBD and has been pushed to July 25 - 26 weekend.
