Sound Studios Olympia is a new nonprofit music school in Olympia located just east of the exploding downtown area. We offer private lessons such as piano lessons, violin lessons, voice lessons, oboe lessons, and more. We also have classes and events lined up for the community as soon as it is safe to begin gathering again. Everything you are looking for and staffed by local professional musicians, some with decades of teaching experience. SSO is locally owned, operated, and supported.

During this difficult time we will have some lessons taught in the studio and others will be held virtually. All of our studios are large enough to accommodate the recommended distancing. Masks are required at all times. We know that this is not easy, and we thank everyone for staying on board with us as we launch during this.

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.
