- About Us
Living in Burbank, you have felt a strong pull to the entertainment industry. You’ve dreamed of joining the Burbank Philharmonic Orchestra, signing with Warner Music Group, or playing music for one of the countless T.V. and movie studios in the area, but where can you find music lessons in Burbank that will help you master your craft and become a musical virtuoso? California Music Studios is just what the doctor ordered.
California Music Studios has over a quarter century of experience in helping students find music teachers for in-home or studio music lessons in Burbank. We work with only the best teachers in the area, which we ensure through a rigorous screening process that includes professional evaluations and background checks.
The teachers we work with conduct private, one-on-one music lessons that work off the student’s learning speed and style, allowing for personalized instruction. The teachers we work with won’t rush ahead or drag you behind. They will only build your musical development and mix in plenty of encouragement. We recommend hourly lessons once or twice a week, but this can change depending upon what your needs are.
We have a 97% or better success rate in student-teacher matching, but if you aren’t happy with your music instructor, we can happily swap your teacher. We understand that a good experience revolves around a positive student-teacher relationship.
We work with a network of over 350 teachers, each trained in a variety of different styles, genres, and instrumental disciplines. Whether you want to play some jazz clarinet or take guitar lessons in Burbank, we can find a teacher for you. Some of the instruments you can learn include:
California Music Studios holds over 60 formal and informal recitals every year, giving you the opportunity to show off in front of your friends and family.
So, are you expected to actually participate in these recitals? Not at all. Your teacher may encourage you to perform. You may decide that you’re ready to take your musical abilities to the next level, but if you’re not ready or feel uncomfortable even thinking about performing in front of others, there’s no need to force it.
That said, performances do come with several benefits. The preparations leading up to the performance require intensive practice, which can reinforce what you’ve learned in lessons and enhance your overall music comprehension. Nailing a prepared piece in front of a crowd is also a great way to boost your confidence and self-esteem. After all that preparation, you will definitely look and feel cool playing for others.
Every musician should at least learn the basics of theory and reading sheet music. Understanding rhythms, note values, and melodies will help you in the long run, beyond your initial guitar, flute, or piano lessons in Burbank. Fortunately, it’s much easier than you think. If you plan to further your musical education, particularly in classical genres, you will need to learn advanced theory.
