  • What String Lessons Do We Offer?

  • Violin

    The mainstay of many classic ensembles that has made its way into country, folk, and chamber rock.

    Get more information on violin lessons.

  • Viola

    The bigger brother of the violin, the viola offers a deeper sound in a slightly larger frame.

    Get more information on viola lessons.

  • Cello

    Tuned an octave below the viola, the cello gets you into the deeper registers for orchestras, popular music, and solo performances.

  • Guitar

    An international symbol for cool, the ole six-string fits in with any style or genre. Take advantage of acoustic, electric, or bass guitar lessons in Irvine for that extra boost in confidence.

  • Bass

    The double bass is the largest in the violin family, providing a deep sound that can be brought out with the bow or a plucky pizzicato.

  • Harp

    Harps offer amazing range, dexterous technique, and potentially the most pleasant sound in the world.

    Get more information on harp lessons.

  • Mandolin

    The mandolin is actually the youngest member of the family, much like the violin. It has four courses of double strings to create a bright, harmonized sound that is oh-so pleasing to the ears.

  • Banjo

    The banjo is an incredibly complex instrument with a ton of folk tradition to back it up.
