You need a piano!

Piano is the universal instrument.  It helps with literally every element of music theory and composition.  We recommend all our students, regardless of their instrument of emphasis, have access to a piano or keyboard.  Let us help you find a piano for your parlor, a keyboard for your kitchen, a spinet for your studio — you get the idea…

Check out our free Piano & Keyboard Buyer’s Guide and bring some music into your home today!

As always, let us know if you have questions, and hit us up when you’re ready to join our studio and take your playing to the next level !

Tips for Buying Your First Violin

Violins are strange and mysterious creatures.  These instruments make their music with wood from European forests, bow sticks from South America, hair from the tails of horses living in Siberia or Mongolia, strings of different metals, plastics, and even sheep intestines, all brought together with magical tree sap called rosin.   It’s no wonder that shopping for your first violin can be an intimidating experience!

Not to worry — we’ve created a step-by-step process to help you find your size, avoid sabotage from “violin shaped objects,” and assemble the multitude of accessories you need to fiddle up a storm!

Tips for Buying a Rad Guitar

Guitar buying can be an overwhelming experience — there are so many options and possibilities!  Here are our quick tips for finding the guitar that is right for you and will last a lifetime:

  1. Find a guitar with an adjustable neck.
  2. Pick a neck and body size that suits your stature.
  3. Choose an instrument with a solid wood top if possible.

We’re expanding!

That’s right — Boise Music Lessons is expanding west!  We’re happy to announce that we’re inviting an amazing musician and educator, Natalie Staley, to join our crew.  Natalie not only brings incredible street cred as an established local artist; she’ll also increase our offerings by teaching voice, songwriting, and advanced piano.  Natalie’s students will attend weekly lessons at her Satellite Studio in West Boise near Capital High, then head over to the mothership (Main Studio) for monthly Hootenannies.

To say we’re excited to have her on board is an understatement.  Please help us in giving her a warm welcome to BML!

Would you like to learn voice, piano, songwriting, or beginning guitar with Natalie?  Head over to our enrollment page for all the deets!

Hey girl, want to play music with us?

Now is your chance to enroll in our remaining 2017 openings.  Spaces are limited to 25 students per instructor, so be sure to snag your spot!

We know you have an old banjo, mandolin, or guitar under your bed.  Now’s the time to learn how to pick and grin!

What about those drums in the corner collecting dust or the heirloom violin from Grandma no one is currently playing?  Dust them off and play some tunes!

We know you bought a ukulele because you watched “America’s Got Talent…”  We’ll teach you not only how to play that uke, but how to jam with your family and friends.

And hey, what about singing?  Who doesn’t want to learn to sing?  We can help you find your voice and learn some backing chords, too!

Decide which instrument you’d like to learn and what membership option you like best.  Once you’re ready to roll, follow the steps on our enrollment page.
