Music

Course Overview

Ready to be the next Taylor Swift or Bruno Mars? The only way to find out is to first learn to play an instrument and sing in key. And even if you don’t hit super stardom, at least you’ll have your own musical ability whenever and wherever you want it.

No musical experience is required, and all levels are open to all students from grades 2-8. Our classrooms use group-based learning and hands-on performance, as our expert Extra Ed music instructors help you be in harmony with your world.
