Current students: CLICK HERE for this month's Saturday class schedule.



We offer university-level instruction on each of these instruments and subjects for a minimal monthly tuition. Click here to see how it works.

The Practice Pad is not like most music schools.  Students at our school will not only have the opportunity to learn music, but to play music with their friends and perform at events throughout the community.

Everyone aged 5 and up is welcome to get started at The Practice Pad.  We have both youth and adult programs, and opportunities to perform for everyone.

Interested in any one of these instruments?

Guitar       Piano       Voice       Drums       Bass       Ukulele

We've got you covered.

Are you interested in learning music theory or how to record music?

You've come to the right place.
