Whether you play for fun, to relieve stress or are serious about building your skills, you have an opportunity to express your creativity. There’s always something new you can learn to improve your technical or musical ability.

DuBaldo Music is one of the most affordable music centers for private lessons in the area. We offer family-friendly rates, with most lessons starting at only $25 for 30 minutes. Hour-long blocks are available upon request. Generally, we offer lessons weekday afternoons and evenings.

You will work one-on-one with an instructor to develop a program that is right for you to help accomplish your goals. Each lesson is planned around the student’s individual needs and abilities as they progress. Whether you’re looking to rock out or develop a sophisticated classical sound, our instructors can help you pursue any style of music.
