Here are some frequently asked questions and the corresponding answers... feel free to contact us with any of your questions that might not be addressed at: 949 706-1800  or contact us online.

What if I am a total beginner?
Welcome. We have taught many, many beginners of all ages and backgrounds, and look forward to helping new students do what they have always wanted---to have fun playing an instrument for themselves and with others.

Do you offer lessons for children?
Yes. Please see our 
Children’s Lesson page.

I want to get back into music, but I am nervous about starting again. Can you help?
Absolutely. For
experienced players, we’re here to help guide you to the next level and help you reach your musical goals.

How soon can I start?
Upon signing up, we will discuss a time that works well for you and you can begin right away. We offer open enrollment and are open year round.

How many lessons should I sign up for?
We like to have our students pay for that month’s lessons in advance—if you start mid-month you would only pay through the end of that month, then before the first lesson of each following month. If you would like to begin your experience with a single lesson to get started with, that’s an option too.

How long are the lessons?
The first lesson is 45 minutes so that we can find out about you and your musical goals, as well as getting you off to playing your first songs with chords. The following lessons are half an hour each and will give you plenty to practice until we see you next.  

Should I bring my instrument and lesson books to the lessons?
Yes. If you forget, no worries, we will lend you one for your lesson. If you have an electric guitar, bass or ukulele we will furnish the cable and amplifier for you while at your lessons.

Do you offer gift certificates for lessons and/or merchandise?
Yes. We will print a nice, big gift certificate on glossy paper in whatever denomination you prefer. We will either send it to you or your recipient. We can also send it to you via e-mail should you want to print it yourself. 

Are there any age restrictions?
We have students of all ages, abilities, and can also help those with special needs. Generally children do better beginning at age 5 or older. 

How much are lessons?
It’s easy to get started with your music lessons! We go month to month, without a contract. Four half hour lessons a month are $240. Simply email us or call 949 706-1800 to schedule your lessons or drop by the store. Lessons may be paid for by cash or check... debit cards, Mastercard, and Visa are all accepted for merchandise and instruments.

Monday - Friday 11:00 to 6:00

Saturday 10:00 to 1:00
