Music Lessons

Theater Steps provides tailored private instruction in voice, piano, and guitar to students of all ages and levels. Private lessons provide focused instruction guiding students to develop their skills and reach their individual goals.

Each student has a different artistic goal whether it be for personal or professional reasons. Theater Steps instructors are trained to work personally with each student to develop a customized plan to master the basic fundamental techniques and to achieve their performance goals.

Online sessions are now available for our music lesson offerings. All you need is a desktop pc, mobile tablet, or phone! We believe there is more to online lessons than simply connecting through the internet with an instructor. We will guide you with instructions on using our online tools to provide an optimal user experience during your session.
