Music Lessons at Sound Starts
Using high quality methods to develop musical skills for children and teens
We are firm believers that meeting your child where they are and utilizing strengths is the best starting point for learning. Our music lessons reflect this view point. We find a way for your child to connect and make meaningful music!
Variety of Instruments
Adapted lessons are available for piano, guitar, voice, flute, clarinet, and cello. Lessons are taught by a board-certified music therapist. Your child’s teacher will help determine which instrument is the most appropriate fit.
Structured Teaching Methods
We primarily use the highly recommended Faber Piano Adventure Series and Essential Elements Series for instrument instruction. Our music therapists frequently to incorporate principles of therapy to help with retaining and implementing new information.
Two Way Communication
Your priorities and feedback for your child’s lessons are of utmost importance to us throughout the music instruction process. You will also receive weekly updates about each lesson.
Come to One Place
If your child with special needs is receiving music therapy or adapted lessons, save time and consider enrolling siblings in music lessons with us. Our therapists are trained on a variety of instruments at the collegiate level.
Music for Littles Ones
Our team is great with little ones. If you have a child who is too young for traditional “on the bench” learning, you can count on us to incorporate movement, games, and out-of-the-box musical activities to reinforce and begin to develop musical skills in a fun and motivating way.
