Why Choose California Music Studios for Music Lessons in Glendale?

In over 25 years of service, California Music Studios has built an expansive network of teachers who can provide studio or in-home music lessons in Glendale. Our goal is to connect students with the best teachers for the job. That starts with our evaluation process. Every teacher we work with must undergo rigorous screening procedures that include personal and professional background checks.

The teachers we work with specialize in individual instruction that is customized to the learning speed and skill of the student.

Which Instrument Do You Want to Learn?

The teachers we work with offer an amazing selection of instruments to learn, so whether you want to blast a trumpet or take guitar lessons in Glendale, we can match you with an expert in the specific discipline and style you want.

  • Strings: Bow, strum, pick, or pluck your way to greatness with an instrument in the string family. Strings are inherently fun to learn and play. Take just a few guitar lessons in Glendale and you’ll immediately feel like a rock star, but don’t limit yourself to just the guitar. Learning one string instrument sets you up to learn others.
    • Guitar (acoustic, bass, electric)
    • Violin (viola, cello, upright bass)
    • Ukulele
    • Mandolin
    • Banjo
    • Harp
  • Keys: If you have difficulty deciding what instrument to learn, piano is the way to go. With very little barrier to entry, the piano offers an extensive repertoire that includes pieces from nearly every genre imaginable. Keyed instruments are also the best way to learn music theory as they offer an easy visual of octaves and steps. Five years of piano lessons in Glendale allows you to easily transpose knowledge to other musical instruments and styles, making it easy to switch instruments later on.
    • Piano
    • Keyboard
    • Accordion
    • Organ
  • Drums: Drums are essential to any band or ensemble. They keep the tempo and add much needed rhythm to a tune.



  • Brass: Brass instruments are all about hefty, powerful sound that can carry a melody or lay the foundation for the rest of the ensemble. Unfortunately, brass instruments tend to have a limited range, but with plenty of practice and embouchure control, you can hit those high notes without a problem.
    • Trumpet/Cornet
    • French horn
    • Trombone
    • Tuba


  • Woodwinds: While they don’t have the same power or volume as a brass instrument, woodwinds more than make up for it in style, technique, and range, hitting multiple octaves without breaking a sweat. Woodwinds have played an integral role in various musical styles, from jazz to classical, so you can achieve plenty of flexibility playing a woodwind.
    • Harmonica
    • Flute/piccolo
    • Oboe
    • Clarinet
    • Saxophone
    • Bassoon
  • Vocals: Your voice is uniquely your own, and with just a little practice and some vocal exercises, you can sing with the best of them.




Did You Know…

  • Music can improve your workouts. Listening to music actually distracts your brain when it says that you’re tired and can override the signals that tell your body that it’s fatigued. This allows you to push past the wall, allowing you to exercise longer and harder than normal. However, this mainly applies to low- to moderate-intensity exercise.
  • Music is inherently connected to mood. Listening to happy, upbeat music can significantly improve your mood. Furthermore, people who have experienced a breakup or relationship problems are more likely to choose music that reflects their negative mood.
  • At the same time, music triggers two kinds of emotions: what’s perceived and what’s felt. That means that you can often perceive the emotions in a song without feeling them, which is why you can listen to sad music and still feel good.
