What do you learn during Music Lessons?

This is one of the most common questions asked by parents and prospective students. The answer is that our music teachers take the time to learn about their students, and become familiar with their music tastes and goals. Our music lessons are geared for all ages and music abilities, therefore we do not give our students generic lessons. For example a 5 year old beginner guitar player, or a 9 year old special needs child will have different lesson needs than a middle aged person picking an instrument up after having played as a child. If you enroll for music lessons at Big Beat we will work one on one with you to deliver music lessons that cater to your individual style, preference, and needs.


What instruments do your offer lessons in?

Big Beat offers music lessons for the following instruments: Guitar/Bass, Drums, Piano, Violin/Viola, Brass, Woodwind instruments, Vocals and more! Our lessons are individualized and catered to each students preferences and needs.


Do you offer school band instrument rentals?

Yes! Big Beat proudly offers orchestra and school band instrument rentals. We also have a selection of instruments and accessories in our on site retail section.
