- About Us
Music has been a part of humanity for tens of thousands of years. We’ve found flutes that are 43,000 years old, and yet no one knows why we have such a deep love for music. So many people feel the great urge to learn music, and really, you don’t need to know why—part of the magic of music is its mysterious hold on our hearts.
If you feel this way about music, now is the perfect time to sign up for Music lessons in Murrieta with California Music Studios to build character, develop new skills, and follow your passion.
Our job is to match students of all ages with highly qualified music teachers who offer private studio or in-home music lessons. Every teacher we work with undergoes a strict personal and professional evaluation procedure that includes a background check and in-person screening. We have a success rate of 97 percent or better in matching students and teachers, but if you’re not satisfied, no worries! We’ll swap out your teacher for someone more to your liking.
All the teachers we work with hold private music lessons, which is so important. With one-on-one instruction, your guitar or piano lessons in Murrieta are more engaging and successful, focusing on your individual strengths, learning style, and progress. We recommend hour-long lessons once or twice a week, but you can choose to take fewer or more lessons.
We offer an extensive range of instruments and disciplines thanks to a growing network of over 350 private music teachers. The instruments you can learn include:
Kids should be at least 4 or 5 years old depending on their interest, attention span, and the instrument they want to play. Certain instruments—guitars, brass, and woodwinds—may be too large or cumbersome for younger kids. For these larger instruments, your child should be at least 7 or 8 years old.
However, there is no upper age limit. If you have the passion, drive, patience, and time, you can learn any instrument you want.
We recommend that students begin with the piano to develop their technique and music theory. Once you have that solid foundation, you can choose to switch instruments or continue piano instruction. Beginners should also consider guitar lessons in Murrieta. The guitar makes an excellent beginner instrument for its diversity of sound and its easy introduction to chords, scales, and picking patterns.
Ultimately, it’s really up to you. Choose an instrument that you know you’ll enjoy. If you’re having fun, you are more likely to practice outside of lessons—an important part of making progress.
California Music Studios holds over 65 recitals a year. Students are free to participate in these recitals if they so choose. They are not mandatory by any means, but recitals give you a chance to show off to parents, friends, and relatives and are a great motivator for your continued musical development.
