SMT offers personalized private lessons in a very wide range of instruments, genres, and traditions, including traditional, folk, rock, blues, pop, jazz, and classical.

We teach students at all ability levels, whether you are just getting started with an instrument for the first time, or are seeking instruction to reach a higher level of playing.

Many of our students take lessons for the express purpose of making music for their own enjoyment. We also teach students who develop careers as performers, teachers, and recording artists.
