Lesson Program

Faded Sandpaper

Sound comes from the hands. Music comes from the heart.

Band Instruments

We offer a comprehensive music program for young people and adults, and will be looking to expand into other activities including:

  • Individual lessons

  • Group lessons

  • Recitals

  • Opportunities to play in ensembles

  • Workshops

  • ...and other musical experiences



You may pay for lessons when you come in for your first lesson. Often people find it convenient to pay for four or more lessons at a time, but they may be paid for on a lesson-by-lesson basis as well - whatever works for you.


If you have financial concerns, please give us a call. We have some scholarships available and will always be looking for ways to make this inclusive for everyone.

While our program offers a lot, we aren't rigid. The beauty of music is how very personal and individual it is, so if you have different needs, give us a call or message. You can contact us at (715) 409-2047 or email



We have two beautiful lesson rooms that we call The Grand Room and The Control Room. The Grand Room earned its name because of the awesome Yamaha baby grand piano we are so fortunate to have. It is on loan to us from our generous neighbors, John Lince-Hopkins and Susan Lince from Arts Squared in Washburn. The Control Room has its name because it also contains the control room for our recording studio. 

You will find the accessories you need in our retail store, and get comfortable sipping a warm drink on our couch by the fireplace while you wait for your lesson.

We welcome your thoughts if you have a program idea!
