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 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.
