First Things First – Music Lessons

Private Lessons. It’s what the Octave does. You’ll learn the way you like to learn. Their well-trained and experienced staff is ready to give you the lessons you’ve been looking for. All lessons are one-on-one so there’s no peer pressure getting in the way. Just relax and enjoy it! That's my daughter on the drums!

The Hard Part – Music Theory

Theory is the language of music. It’s one of the many tools musicians use to communicate, and it can be a roadmap to greatness. Just let your instructor know whether you want a little or a lot, and they'll help you reach your goals.

The Fun Part – Performing

Finally. You finally get to show people what you’ve learned. They offer two recitals a year free of charge to you to showcase your talents, or watch your children play. Be sure to keep an eye open for other opportunities! There's my son singing his heart out!
