As one of our most popular instruments, the piano is a perfect choice for anyone at almost any age. Our main goal at Mason Music is to make music fun; so, piano lessons with us are unlike anywhere else around. We know students want to learn how to play the songs that they love listening to. We also know that learning how to play chords and songs by ear unlocks the potential for a student to have a lifetime of enjoyment around the instrument. At our studios, students learn the fundamentals of music while also being exposed to wide varieties of techniques and music genres. All of our teachers are exceptionally trained, and have their own unique teaching styles and personalities. Whether you are interested in learning to play by ear, or in becoming the next classical prodigy, we work hard to create an environment that will foster growth and creativity.

Our approach to guitar lessons is to create a lesson plan that strikes a balance of three key elements: songs, techniques and music theory. We know new students get inspired by quick results, so we begin by teaching students a song in their very first lesson! Our teachers then set, track, and celebrate goals as they are met by the student so that they are constantly encouraged by the progress they are making. Our guitar teachers are qualified to teach most styles of guitar, and each one comes with their own specialty and personality. We make every effort to match our guitar students with someone who will not only be their teacher, but a mentor as well, so that they can enjoy music as much as we do! Playing guitar is incredibly rewarding. If you are considering picking it up for the first time, read our blog post with tips for beginner guitar players to get you started!

With them, music is sure to be a life-changing experience.

As one of the most difficult instruments to learn, the violin can be intimidating! However, at Mason Music, we combine both classical and contemporary training methods to create an exciting and challenging environment that anyone can thrive in.

We have a well-rounded staff of violinists; all of whom are highly-trained and active in the music world. We understand that everyone has individual personalities and learning styles, so we work hard to make sure that each student is placed with someone who can meet their needs, and be both a teacher and cheerleader during the musical journey.
