Why take lessons?

Private music lessons are a vital part of a musician's development and continued progress. This is accomplished through exercises, explanation, and a critical eye looking over tendencies and habit development. Music students of all ages and abilities benefit from a teacher who will help guide their progress. 

Why music?

Studies have shown that music is beneficial to developing minds, as well as the minds of adults who want to keep sharp. It's not magical, but it is clear that studying and engaging with music stimulates and exercises the brain in ways that are not met by other practices. That being said, we still view our music as our art and our passion more than anything else. Music moves us, and it brings people together. One of the reasons why at Sound Studios Olympia we want to create performance opportunities for all of our students is because we believe that we learn music with the sole purpose of sharing it. Our concert events are almost all open to the public, and we invite the community in for events and classes throughout the year. 

How does it work?

Generally the student comes in once per week for their lessons, one on one with their teacher. The lesson length might be 30 minutes or up to one hour. At each lesson your teacher will work with you on technique and musicianship as well as music theory and note reading, then during the week at home you try to practice everyday for the amount of time your teacher recommends. Daily practice is ideal for progress.

At different times of the year we offer classes and special programs. Always check back for more information on those! You may also write us at if you have a class or program you'd like to see us offer!
