The objective is to pair you, the student, with the right teacher, so you get an an optimal, enriching learning experience. Each teacher goes through a stringent qualifying process and a rigorous in-person professional and personal background check to ensure trust and safety.
According to an independent survey, students at California Music Schools have a 97% or better satisfaction rate with both California Music Studios and their teacher. Even if your initial arrangements don’t work out with an instructor, California Music Schools will work with you to find a better fit for you. However, that 97% majority of students and teachers develop a positive rapport that carries well past the instruction term.
That constructive connection and one-on-one interaction is paired with a personalized lesson plan tailored to your own learning speed and progress.
Most students begin with weekly lessons, but you can choose to do more or less depending on your circumstances. Students can also participate in any of the 65 or more recitals hosted by California Music Schools each year.

If you’re not sure what instrument to start out with or have no inclinations toward a particular instrument, the piano or keyboard is a perfect place to start. With a tradition that dates back centuries, the piano offers the best foundation for music theory and technique, both of which carry over to other instruments. We pair students with teachers who will focus on personal goals, whether that’s mastering Bach and Beethoven or cutting out an entirely new niche.
One of the most important instruments since the Baroque era, the violin has played an integral role in music theory and development. Violins possess a delicate sound that can carry melodies or provide accompaniment. Although it’s most widely considered a classical instrument, the violin can adapt to nearly all musical styles, particularly folk and jazz. The instructors we work with ensure students’ proper posture, play style, and technique as the foundation to creativity and free expression.
No instrument is more natural than your voice. Singing requires just as much practice and technique as playing any other instrument. Instructors work with students to find range, pick up on harmonies, and develop sound technique so that they can sing with a confident, in-tune voice. With each hour-long lesson and plenty of practice, students will notice themselves improving, a welcome reward that only encourages them to keep learning.
