Study with one of our many piano teachers and learn proper technique and practice habits to help you improve. From casual learners to the serious musicians, we have experience and opportunities for you at SSO.
Stop learning from YouTube videos! You may be able to figure out which keys to strike at which time, but you are not going to understand your instrument. Let us help you or your child gain a fuller understanding for the piano and an appreciation for it as an instrument.

Woodwinds are unique and powerful instruments. Their role in orchestral music brings out the true pipe organ sound. They are playful, and somber. Overall they are important additions to the sound, and strong enough that there need only be a few of them in an orchestra for it to be full. So come study the oboe, clarinet, flute, or saxophone with us. Our instructor has decades of playing experience and will help your student succeed as he has with many others. Students go on to perform well at competitions, or even audition for scholarships for universities or music conservatories. We work with all ages and abilities, so don't hesitate, beginners are welcome as are the casual older student who just wants to play soprano saxophone on a boat after retirement. Reach out today.
We have a couple of guitar teachers who have different approaches. The guitar is a wonderful instrument which can be played as a soloist or as an accompaniment to other instruments, or voices. Let us get you started with one of our instructors right away. We also work with Ukuleles and other less common instruments. We will be happy to talk with you about what we can offer.
Voice and choir at Sound Studios Olympia. We have a voice teacher with a background spanning opera to jazz and folk. You can study in a beautiful studio where you will feel comfortable to sing your heart out, make mistakes, and grow! Our voice teacher also directs a choir which she will be happy to let people join, as long as the vocal range proportions are maintained. It cannot be overstated that understanding our own voices is the most fundamental lesson in all music, no matter what the instrument or style is. We breathe, phrase, and express through our instruments in the same way we would as singers, so whether you want to be able to sing well or not, we highly recommend a voice lesson series for all students in order to improve musicianship.
