The Hear & There Music Difference...

We want all of our students to be satisfied and enjoy their lessons. Custom curriculums balance fundamentals with individual preferences. Students are given the opportunity to set personalized goals while we provide the guidance and organization to keep them on track!

Reasonable expectations. We understand many students are involved in multiple extra-curricular activities. We focus on techniques that make practice time efficient and result-oriented rather than overwhelming students with hours of mandatory homework.

Optional recitals at a professional venue that allow students to perform on a real stage, showcase their talents and be recognized for their acheivements!

Hear & There Music utilizes technology to help students succeed. Students may share their performances from home via our Youtube group. It’s just another way that we stay connected and can enhance our learning & fun!

There is NO mandatory 45 min lessons. Some schools extend the lessons and the payments… Not Hear & There!

There is no contract and you can discontinue lessons at any time. We want you here because you are extremely satisfied with your experience, not because you are locked in.

Hear & There Music features a generous cancellation policy. We understand that scheduling conflicts are a part of life, no need for a 48 or 24 hour notice at Hear & There!

Parents don't waste their time driving! Everyone has more important things to do than driving to lessons. Hear & There Music makes learning convenient! Why leave the home when the instructor can come to you?

Learning in the home is more comfortable for the student. You play on the same instrument that you practice on! Don’t worry about forgetting books. Plus, there's more time for homework and other things!
