Private Music Lessons
Does your child spend hours inventing songs on that old out-of-tune piano at grandma’s house? Does he play air guitar to your old records? Does she have dreams of playing with a symphony some day? Or, have you always wanted to learn an instrument, but never had the opportunity as a kid?
At The Harmony Garden, we are passionate about helping everyone – kids and adults – bring out their inner virtuoso!
Harmony Garden students can learn instruments and musical skills including:
- Beginner Flute
- Theory / Composition
Simply drop us a line using the form below, and we’ll set up your complimentary “Meet & Greet” lesson, in which you’ll meet a teacher, get some hands-on time with your instrument of choice (and most likely go home able to play at least one simple tune!) and get a taste of what it feels like to be a musician.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you or your child get started on a musical adventure!
“Today after my son’s 4th piano lesson he told me he wants to be a musician. I did not even know he knew that word! Music is a big part of his life now, mostly thanks to his teachers at The Harmony Garden!”
– Heather, Harmony Garden Parent
At what age can my child start lessons?
This depends a little on the instrument. We offer piano lessons starting at the age of 5, and string instruments at the age of 7. Younger students may be considered with an interview with the instructor.
I’m adult – can I take lessons?
How long are lessons?
This depends on the student’s age and level of experience. For beginners, we recommend starting with 30-minute lessons. As the student develops experience and skills, the instructor will recommend increasing lesson time in order to maximize the student’s growth. All lessons meet once a week.
How much should my child practice?
This also depends on the student’s age and experience. Your instructor will recommend how long your child should practice each day. Even more important than how many minutes your child practices, however, is the consistency of practice. We’ll help you find the perfect practice routine for your child’s schedule so that daily practice becomes a fun part of the day, rather than a tedious task.
How much do lessons cost?
We make paying for lessons convenient through flat, monthly fees, so budgeting for lessons is easy.

Do I need to buy books or sheet music?
The student’s first set of books is included with your one-time registration fee of $35. Any other books the student will need can be purchased from the studio at a discount.
Do I need to purchase or rent an instrument?
Practicing outside of the lesson is critical to the student’s growth and success. If you do not have an instrument, we will be happy to help you find a high-quality instrument to purchase or rent.
